"If Adam can look into the future and predict what's going to happen, more power to him. I don't have that power yet," said Ms. Chow. "Maybe I'll get that someday."
Individual success is about identifying and pursuing opportunities that will provide that success. It necessitates a narrowing of bandwidth, particularly in a contest with a set end-point. Go fast, go alone, etc.
When you cloud out the periphery and focus on the win, however, you see but through a glass darkly; the landscape can only be seen in terms of threat, benefit and irrelevance.
The last that category where most people fall. It's what you don't know that always gets you.
Precognition isn't about predicting the future so much as it has having a more thorough understanding of the present. Seeing clearly is about mindfulness; a sublimation of the self to expand one's consciousness of the surrounding context.
If that's Chow's goal, she's in the wrong line of work.
