March 11, 2007 The Uniqueness of a Moment
Have you ever stopped to wonder the uniqueness of a moment? This instant here, now is unique – the world has never been in this situation before and it never will be again. There will never be again the current set of people living, building and communicating.
Keep this in mind when predicting and forecasting things. You can not think that “this has not happened before, so it can not happen now”. Or, “the economic slump has happened roughly every seven years, so it will happen in two years’ time.”
You can not think that “she can not start that career, because she does not have proper education and right diplomas for it.” Did Madonna go through a superstardom university before becoming Madonna?
Like they say in the financial brochures:
“Past performance is not an indication of future results”
So, be prepared to be surprised.
