Managing uncertainty

It’s a pipe dream.

Uncertainty is linked to the unknown and that is not going to go away. It’s the knowledge that something might happen that we have not planned for.

The sense of uncertainty is proportional to the number of factors that can affect your ability to achieve the goal you are aiming for. With most of these factors being outside of your influence.

Trying to resolve uncertainty means to try to deal with the things you can’t influence.

It’s missing the point that what you can change is your certainty. There are factors you can influence and have to learn how to do so. Certainty builds on your growing experience and practice. It’s the result of regularly moving out of your comfort zone and meeting the uncertainty you are able to bear.

Some do it one step after the other. Some prefer big leaps.

Both approaches are faster than waiting for uncertainty to dissolve.
