Everyone wants to see the future. Few are good at it. From business to economics, politics to social trends, we're just not very good at predicting what happens next. According to Morgan Housel, this is because we focus too much on what we think will change and not enough on what we know will stay the same. Technological and medical advancements may astound across centuries, but fundamental human behaviors persist. Greed, fear, risk, jealousy, tribal affiliations, overconfidence, and the pursuit of certainty endure through time. While history holds unforeseen surprises, recognizing these enduring aspects provides confidence in decision-making, irrespective of future uncertainties.
