We can’t let the Unintended go Unanticipated not even the Unknown. It wouldn’t be diligent. Not even performing our jobs. Not if we don’t anticipate all those things we can’t possibly discern! We must know.
All the variables must be contemplated. With options, alternatives and chance occurrences fully analyzed. Nothing can be left unturned. Never left unconsidered. We must know.
