Which phrases do you use? “Back then I had it all…” “Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die” “If only I could fast forward…”
It occurred to me that I always seem to have my head in the future. As with everything, I am sure there needs to be a balance. Too much unrealistic nostalgia for past times or too much ‘living for the moment’ can’t be good either. Buy if we are living in the future all the time, great things are never accomplished today. If, like me, you are always looking for the next capability to learn, maybe stop and take the time to really investigate and use what you already have really well before moving on to the next thing. If we keep developing new capabilities but then never using them, they aren’t going to be very effective for anyone.
Let me know what you think.
