“No situation repeats itself…”

No situation repeats itself, and each situation calls for a different response. – Viktor Frankl

Belief systems are fragile. They’re most vulnerable when we need them most.

What people misunderstand about beliefs is that they’re guesses for how things usually work. Beliefs represent a framework for action.

You should master the fundamentals so you always have something to fall back on when the unpredictable occurs.

However, a strong belief system should also leave open the possibility of change and improvement so you can achieve practically anything.

Beliefs are the toolset, adaptation is a means of survival.

If every problem had the same solution, none of us would be where we are today. Innovation emerges when you’re challenged with what feels like the impossible.

The standardization and inflexibility of beliefs is what holds modernity back. Keep beliefs grounded but somewhat flexible so you can tweak your approach. Experiment when it’s necessary.

Every situation is distinguished by its uniqueness, and there is always only one right answer to the problem posed by the situation at hand.
