With this ‘How to learn from then for the benefit of now‘ post, I am not suggesting all events from the past justify or warrant a plaque to remind the world of their occurrence.
Looking at yesterday’s experiences for the sake of developing ourselves today is, however, a practice worth investing in. From this perspective, we are as it were demonstrating how to learn from then for the benefit of now.
Using history – be it our own, that of a country or even of the world as a whole – we are tapping into a valuable resource and showing we know how to learn from then for the benefit of now.
Naturally, in the process, we obtain information and ideas about both what we can implement and what is best left alone.
Taking the issue of how to learn from then for the benefit of now to a much more personal level, let me stop here by asking this question: “What has been the key lesson for you from the year to date?”
