     Life, like poker, is one long game, and there are going to be a lot of losses, even after making the best possible bets.  We are going to do better, and be happier, if we start by recognizing that we'll never be sure of the future.  That changes our task from trying to be right every time, an impossible job, to navigating our way through the uncertainty by calibrating our beliefs to more toward, little by little, a more accurate and objective representation of the world.  With strategic foresight and perspective, that's manageable work.  If we keep learning and calibrating, we might even get good at it.
