    Maybe a fun question to ponder. I think the only way to prepare for uncertainty is to prepare for certainty. Does that emulate the Boy Scout motto; "Be Prepared"? And, to be aware especially of changes. Changes are outcomes that can be indicators for predictions. EX: If you hear a door creak, then the hinge is wearing or the door is misaligned. No matter it will not get better, it 'may' worsen. From there it is a matter of why, when, how, and how much guiding the uncertainty of certainty.

    Learning to "live in the now" requires meditation & practice.
    However when we're always thinking about tomorrow, next week, month, or year it robs us of experiencing peace & serenity of (now). Compartmentalizing while working on goals is the key.
    "Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, And wisdom to know the difference." -  Reinhold Niebuhr
    Newsflash! We're all going to die. (That's for certain!)
    Life is a (personal) journey.  Learn to enjoy (your) adventure!

    Save up more money to cover emergencies or a job loss.
    Plan contingencies of what to do if you have to move out of your home/apartment, change jobs, take a different route to work due to violent riots.
