Quote of the Day
Don't ever empty the bucket of mystery. Never let people define what you do. It's not about zigging when you should zag. It's not about doing something unprecedented and unpredictable. It's just about never being a word, or something that is not in the process of transformation.
The world is so unpredictable. Things happen suddenly, unexpectedly. We want to feel we are in control of our own existence. In some ways we are, in some ways we're not. We are ruled by the forces of chance and coincidence.
The real enemies of our life are the 'oughts' and the 'ifs.' They pull us backward into the unalterable past and forward into the unpredictable future. But real life takes place in the here and now.
At its best, life is completely unpredictable.

I know I'm incredibly unpredictable, and that's the only thing I'm sure of.

Harvey V. Fineberg

You look at a herd of cattle and well, they all look the same... but they know. They all have an individual personality, and those personalities change from day to day.
