The term outlook means a "mental view or survey," 1742, from out- + look (v.). The meaning "prospect for the future" is attested from 1851. Earliest sense was "a place from which an observer looks out or watches anything" (1660s).
What is the mental view or survey for you? What is the prospect for the future? Looking forward should be fun. The future should be exciting and new. To get to the future please remember the present. All doors to the future start in the present.
Handful of sorrow, fistful of consequences, pocketful of change
