Your Present Informing Your Past

After writing my last blog post, Your Past Informing Your Present, I thought about how your present might inform your past. Yes, that’s not the usual way we go; however there is something to it.

If you look at your past actions, attitudes and decisions from the vantage point of now, there’s a good chance you are wiser and more experienced than you were then. Evaluating past actions is a practice of continuous improvement, if you do it well.

You carry your past throughout your life. Why not use it to your advantage? What might you have done differently in the past, if you knew what you know today?

Your Past Informing Your Present

Sometimes, you forget to let your past inform your present actions, attitudes and decisions. Do so, however, at your peril. Why? Because hard lessons learned in the past can help you now, reasons for past wins have a lot of value for you and repeating mistakes from the past does you no good.

What are some of the significant learnings from your past that can inform you now?
