Looking into Our Future

What do you picture when you imagine your future? What about the future of our species? Growing up, we imagine great possibilities for ourselves. We say we want to be astronauts or famous actors. We say we want to do something memorable for the greater good. But, how many people actually go out and achieve their goals? No one knows what life holds in the future. The important thing is how much you learn while you’re getting there. The best way to build a future is to look back on our past and make informed decisions for the future of ourselves and of humanity.

“It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.”
-William Shakespeare

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.

-Steve Jobs
