When I hear people say that the young folks are the hope of the world, I always smile because the person making that statement probably has no idea how true that is. Not just because they have the future in their hands, because they also are observing the need for balance in their lives.
Trust me when I say complexity in life is not going to get better any time soon. We will be fighting against it for decades. Make these decisions and you have a fighting chance to step out of the web of complexity. Ignore making these and joy in life will feel like a vapor you reach for and never grasp.
In any audience, there is a percentage of people who act very academic and tell me there is no way to predict the future. They comment about Black Swan events, acts of God and the vast number of variables that just make it impossible. Although their debate doesn’t sound weak on the surface, they are simply ignoring the fact that in many cases, we can accurately speculate on what will happen looking forward – even with the complexity and Black Swan elements in the mix.
