About this title
Life is full of surprises. Some are good and some are not. As we travel through the time of our lives, we naturally develop tactics to deal with its joys and sorrows. From the news media, a person could conclude that science and technology are our personal saviors – prolonging our lives – protecting us from the behaviors of others and even shielding us from the consequences of our personal actions. There’s no doubt that the Information Age has broadened our horizons. But it has done little to change or alter what comes into view. The question is: How can each of us best avoid some of life’s pitfalls and prepare for dealing with those that penetrate our defenses?
There is no “one-size-fits-all” tactic or recipe that works. Just as each of us is unique, so are our values, beliefs, aversions, and tolerances. The ways in which people deal with uncertainty seem simple on the surface, yet are extremely complex. No one can tell you what to do about risk in your life. But “20% Chance of Rain” will help you pack your personal parachute for the situations where you need a strategy to deal with unexpected events.Review:
