We can all agree on one thing, that life is a mystery. We do not know, how would it unfold with time. Right? Does knowing it, help us or not knowing does?
I feel that this mystery is the reason for life being so interesting. Where is the fun when life is fully laid out for your knowledge? This is what provokes us to toil in the present to see the future. If we knew everything, would we have been motivated to do anything?
Life is a series of events over a long period of time. The uniqueness of this life is its unpredictability. What do we feel when we try solving puzzles?

When an artist tries to create his masterpiece, he doesn’t know the outcome. He would just try to do his best. The indefinite outcome or the mystery of the enterprise drives the artist.

Had he known everything, then it would be a pointless endeavor to pursue his art. Use this unpredictability or invisible force as your drive.
