Randomness in Life

March 14, 2012 by  
Filed under Uncategorized

Chapter one of this book explores the random factors in life.  It discusses how their are skills and things that affect outcomes, but many times we cannot be sure because of the random factors.  It gives examples like how the Hollywood box office success fluctuates so much and how baseball players numbers happen at random at times.  The author says that we try to predict randomness and analyze tendencies, but we can’t really be sure.

I do agree that randomness affects are life a great deal.  If it didn’t, life would be a bore.  Everything would be scientifically or mathematically figured out and outcomes would be predetermined.  Why try as hard if you know the outcome?  Even though I do believe randomness has a large effect on outcomes, I don’t believe we should focus too much on it.  We can’t just rely on randomness to decide our fate.  We have to set ourselves up for the best situation and odds and then let randomness take it from there.  The more sure you can be in a situation, the less randomness is possible.

    I like how you think that people shouldn’t focus so much on random factors that could happen but make a plan and try to eliminate the different factors by setting plan and following the plan to the best of our ability. Of course randomness will still occur but just not as much as it normally would.

  2. Together with the whole thing which appears to be building inside this particular subject matter, your opinions tend to be rather radical. On the other hand, I beg your pardon, because I do not give credence to your entire plan, all be it exciting none the less. It seems to us that your commentary are actually not completely justified and in simple fact you are generally your self not entirely certain of the assertion. In any case I did appreciate looking at it.
