The fear of the unknown can cause us to over-plan, micromanage, and worry about things that are beyond our control. But coping with uncertainty feels uncomfortable. According to author/professor Brian Klaas, many of the things that shape our lives aren't really within our control. A chance meeting at the grocery store might have a much more profound effect on your life than where you went to college. His book Fluke explains the role chance and chaos play in our lives. But he says everything we do is still important. Some of the things he talks about today are how to embrace radical uncertainty, accept things that you can't control, and recognize why every little thing you do matters.
