Wow -- what a dismal outlook on life. (I read the article, not just the doodle). He seems to be saying "If you don't expect too much, you won't be disappointed."I doubt seriously that Michael J. Fox achieved his level of success and achievement by having low expectations and just settling for whatever came his way.
Hi Tony! Thanks for dropping by.You raise some good points. I suspect that there are nuances to his philosophy of life that don't come through in this "sound bite" interview.We really have no way of knowing exactly what he meant. I chose to interpret it as accept what you can't change (like developing Parkinson's) and to work towards goals but not assume that your every wish will be granted.Just settling for everything, certainly would be a dismal way to live!
