The unknown is something we all have to face; and there’s so much of it in life. While planning and preparation can reduce uncertainty, they don’t remove it entirely.
This quote, by trailblazing architect, Frank Gehry, is about having the courage to face each day, situation, or endeavor not necessarily having all the answers or a sense of certainty. Sometimes we just have to “bumble forward into the unknown.” And unfortunately, that is not a choice but a reality. Ultimately, we all have to “bumble” forward in one way or another.
Recognizing this fact of life can help reduce our anxiety and increase our mental readiness when faced with life’s many uncertainties.
