Things rarely turn out exactly as you expect them to.
Sometimes our predictions are fairly close.
Sometimes we’re way off the mark.
But every time we try something we gain more information. What worked. What didn’t. What was useful. What wasn’t. What was valuable. What was a waste.
Each attempt gives us a better chance of getting where we actually want to go, of achieving what we actually want to achieve.
We have to pay attention though.
We have to analyse the results, examine what happened. And then use that information to make better decisions next time. We can correct our path, but only when we look at our compass.
Then we have another question to consider. Is north definitely where we want to go?
