Do not chase predictability at all costs from "summary" of Antifragile by Nassim Nicholas Taleb

The desire for predictability is a common trait among humans. We like to feel in control, to know what will happen next. We seek out patterns and regularity in an attempt to make sense of the world around us. However, this quest for predictability can sometimes lead us astray. In our efforts to create a sense of order and certainty, we may overlook the benefits of embracing uncertainty and randomness. It is tempting to try to eliminate all sources of unpredictability in our lives, but this pursuit can be detrimental in the long run. When we prioritize predictability above all else, we become fragile. We become overly reliant on stability and routine, making us vulnerable to disruptions and shocks. In our quest for control, we may inadvertently create more chaos and instability. Instead of chasing predictability at all costs, we should learn to embrace uncertainty. By recognizing the inherent randomness and unpredictability of life, we can become more resilient and adaptable. We can learn to thrive in the face of uncertainty, rather than cower in fear of the unknown. Embracing uncertainty allows us to tap into the power of randomness and chaos. It opens up new opportunities and possibilities that we may have never considered before. By letting go of our need for predictability, we can become antifragile – able to not just withstand disruptions, but to actually benefit from them. So, instead of chasing predictability at all costs, let us learn to welcome uncertainty with open arms. Let us embrace the chaos and randomness of life, and in doing so, discover a newfound sense of strength and resilience.
