Inductive reasoning leads to the philosophical problem of induction, and conclusions you draw every day are inductive. Entertain a possibility of how these conclusions could turn out to be wrong (false). The fact that what has happened in the past cannot always predict what may happen in the future leads to uncertainty and uneasiness. In what sense are we lucky that some things do happen the way they have happened in the past? How you can improve your critical thinking by being mindful of this?

I don’t believe there are too many things that we can reliably count on repeating themselves that are not scientifically set in stone. Sure we can count on the sun coming up every day, plants producing oxygen and so on. But anything that has a human or mechanical element to it should be taken with a grain of salt. Any of those things are subject to interference which makes them unreliable. In terms of critical thinking, this reminds me of the saying “believe half of what you see and none of what you hear”. Ultimately most of these things are only good to be taken at face value.
