Tips for dealing with uncertainty

  • Clarify your goals and objectives, what is really important to you and what is optional. 
  • Create a map.  You need a system that allows you to maneuver when you lose perspective.
  • Go towards uncertainty. Take the first step and you’ll see that the limits of the unknown become narrower.
  • Focus on what you can control in the short term. Do not obsess over what might happen in the future or you will be foolishly paralyzed.
  • Be open to surprises. It will allow you to learn and experience things that you have not even dreamed of.
  • Accept the risks
  • Be curious. Observe, read, question, learn, do not take anything for granted.
  • Be brave. The secret of getting ahead is getting started.

IDEA

If you can accept uncertainty, you’ll be open to many more opportunities.

If you’re afraid of uncertainty, you’ll skip starting a business, for example. You can’t really know for sure how things will turn out, and so if you have this need to control the outcome, you’ll avoid great opportunities.

Human beings can find meaning in a life full of suffering and misery, if they move out of their own selves and start to help others.

One can use the skills they have to be at service to others in need.
