Building on what we already have

When undertaking a task, awareness of where we are and how we reached this position may be viewed as a starting point for development. Rather than automatically beginning from scratch, we should not overlook the option of building on what we already have.

Building on what we already have ensures we learn from past efforts for the benefit of fulfilling future objectives. In this manner, we are using yesterday’s work as momentum for our ongoing efforts.

Building on what we already have is, additionally, a way to acknowledge the presence in our toolbox of several crucial items such as experience, skills, competencies and learning acquired from previous activities.
