Looking at Tomorrow

Whiee we can predict tomorrow, there’s little certainty in that prediction.  Yes, the sun will ‘come up’ and we’ll see it unless it’s cloudy or rainy (and that’s usually a pretty accurate guess – because it will be a sunny, 65 WNBC degrees – the weather is usually brought to you by the media – I always used to think it was God’s job, but has now been delegated to the media.)

But the truth is that the future is not predictable – not the stock market, not the ball games, not the hit movies and not anything we really care about, nothing that we want or that we pray for.  And however we go to sleep at night has little to do with how we wake up in the morning.

We live in a world of (at best) statistical probabilities.  But I say we have to stand up and shout, “I am not a statistical probability!”  Statistics – forecasts – apply to groups, never to individuals.  You cannot be x% likely to have a disease, y% to be caught in a landslide, z% to be on the losing side of an election or buy a sub-prime mortgaged home and be evicted.  You are not a statistic until after the fact. 

That’s what coaching is all about – to empower an individual in the face of a statistic,  To have you live a life above average (like all residents of Lake Woebegone – all of whose children are above average.)

My job is tomorrow.  That’s where I live.  That’s what I live for – to guide you to a New Future.

“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.  The important thind is never to stop questioning”
Albert Einstein

What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow: Our life is the creation of our mind.
