Numerous challenges exist when we consider the past. We cannot change the past, and we cannot go back and relive it, so why dwell on the events of it?
We have heard the thought expressed, “if we do not learn from the past, we are doomed to repeat it.” We must allow the past to provide us with a tool by which we learn.
Leaders at every level should closely examine the past and evaluate what can be learned from both the good and bad, successes and failures.
Ultimately, the result should produce a plan for how to move ahead.
