“Oh, if only we knew then what we know now” How many times have we said these words to ourselves, dreading the unknown, wondering what it feels like to have a glimpse of our future? But let’s face the truth, unless you have a time machine in your backyard, the future will remain as unknown as the new Game of Thrones season!
What do you do when you’re in an exam and unable to answer a question? You ask someone who knows, right? Life is nothing but an exam, so why not ask someone who has preceded you in this exam, who knows a little more extra? That’s cheating I know, but who said we can’t manipulate with the unknown and turn it in our favor? So let’s steal a march on life.
