The past is remembered. Live in the moment. The future is in you.

As I merged into the freeway, I saw a moving truck. The truck was carrying a bundle of thin, long wood.
Guess how a bundle of thin, long wood was loaded onto truck. Picture it in your mind, before you see my drawing.
My drawing of truck shown below: (It is not the greatest drawing ever. Ignore the flat rear tire. Yes, I used scratch paper. Go Green!)
As the truck began to quickly accelerate, something happened.
Was it good or bad? Look at my drawing again.
Remember, everything happens for a reason.
The bundle of wood snapped into half. Why, so? Wood was loaded incorrectly. The driver made a fool of himself. Lesson learned.
What was my prediction before he started accelerating?
Eventually, the wood was about to break. (Common sense.) As you accelerate faster, the wind will push harder against the thin wood. (A bit of physics knowledge)
Yes, I was entertained. I laughed. I told myself, "Common sense, dude."
Then, I realized nobody is perfect. Obviously, we have made careless mistakes.
For instance, I was early at a music concert but I left my tickets at home, which was 90 minutes away.
Most importantly, nobody was neither hurt nor injured when the wood snapped.
