I knew it all along!

‘I knew that this business plan wouldn’t work.’

‘I knew that it would rain today when I looked at the clouds!’

‘I always knew that he would be a successful author someday.’

Too often does somebody know it all along. But we hear it only after their prediction has happened. This is a trick that our mind plays on us – to make things seem ‘predictable in hindsight’.

‘Predictable in hindsight’. Ain’t that a strange phrase? By its very definition, should something not be predictable only in foresight?

When you catch a whiff of ‘I knew it all along’, perk up your senses. For you can almost certainly discredit this notion, even as you wonder why they did not act earlier.
