We don’t start hoping we’ll get there.
We make strategies. Plans. Executing them to the T.
Then comes a huge black swan effect. At the moment we were waiting for it to get over, another one came in sweeping away all strategies.
And when all of these do not work, then comes the hope. Hope that we will make through this storm, like we’ve done through all of them. Hope that there exists a light at the end of the tunnel, wherever the end is. Hope that till we get to the end of the tunnel, we will be the light.
All our strategies didn’t account for what we are going through. Hope is the only thing we’re left with – fortunately.
Hedging can be done against a possible Black swan event, even though we do not know what it is.
