The UnexpectedPosted: May 23, 2011
It’s ALL about expectations. We function via fulfilled expectations. We dis-function via unfulfilled expectations, or the unexpected. We survive by changing the unexpected into the expected without excluding existing expectations. Some call this “coping”. To cope with car failure is one thing. We plan for it, thereby moving the unexpected into the expected column. To cope with brain failure, e.g. someone with Alzheimer’s is quite another thing. I feel overwhelmed today by the constant flow of the unexpected.
