“The best way to predict your future is to create it.”

Quote by Abraham Lincoln: “The best way to predict your future is to create it.”

Abraham Lincoln

Peter Drucker is credited with a similar quotation, “We Cannot Predict the Future, But We Can Invent It.”

Recommendation:  ask what vision you would like to create and list or describe the desired results in your plan for life and/or the organization you serve. This will add inspiration, encourage focus on solutions, and prompt action better and faster.

Sample question to call upon: If you could do or create what you wanted, what would it look like? or What results would you like?

You can do this. And, you and teachers can teach statements like these to students to encourage them to think of dreams and other desired results–for school, sports, even summer vacations. When someone has a problem, consider the outcomes wanted and solutions to the problems likely will flow faster.

Your written plan for life will help you create your future because you have drafted a creation in your mind and on paper. And, when life calls you to make corrections or even change course, you will have a plan to improve and have a process in mind that will help you get to a new solution better and faster. David
