Being a Fool in The Right Place (IM 849)

Ray Bradbury once said, “We’re all fools, all the time. It’s just we’re a different kind each day. We think, I’m not a fool today. I’ve learned my lesson. I was a fool yesterday but not this morning. Then tomorrow we find out that, yes, we were fool yesterday too.”

We, humans, can’t run away from being a fool because we are humans and it’s a nature. We shouldn’t be ashamed of being a fool as we can’t skip this.

We predict on everything. We have opinions about anything. We judge people and things as ‘good’ and ‘bad’. These are the reasons we are fooled because the truth is we are very bad at prediction (Most people argue on this but there is no point of arguing because this is a fact).

The point is not to avoid predicting and not to stop being fool; it is to to be fool at right place. The point is to avoid prediction in big subjects that may hurt us in the future –  it is to be fool in smaller matters not in the large.

Check this out for the result of predicting the future.
