Have you ever just wished for a crystal ball, an opportunity to peer into the future for a concrete fact to help make a decision? Does this 60-minute window give me enough time to make a connecting flight? Should I travel ahead of schedule based on the weather forecast of treacherous driving conditions?

As we get older and become wiser, we plan and do our best to mitigate risk. Often, the testament to our maturity is when we observe our kids make decisions with an aura of invincibility. To my fellow baby boomers, I am trying to grapple with this disconnect. If you have not been screened for colon cancer, you are ignoring a crystal ball with this same aura of invincibility.
