What happens now?

Be flexible, advises Ann Patchett in her book What Now?.

Plan for the future, but keep in mind that the future may not be arranged precisely in accordance with your plan.

“The secret is finding the balance between going out to get what you want and being open to the thing that actually winds up coming your way,” Patchett explains.

What’s tomorrow going to bring? “What now is not just a panic-stricken question tossed out into a dark unknown,” she says. “What now can also be our joy. It is a declaration of possibility, of promise, of chance. It acknowledges that our future is open, that we may well do more than anyone expected of us, that at every point in our development we are still striving to grow.”
