“Yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away.
Now it looks as though they’re here to stay.
Oh, I believe in yesterday.” The Beatles, Yesterday
“I will live this day as if it is my last. …I will waste not a moment mourning yesterday’s misfortunes, yesterday’s defeats, yesterday’s aches of the heart, for why should I throw good after bad?” -Og Mandino, The Greatest Salesman In The World
“With a tear for the dark past, turn we then to the dazzling future, and, veiling our eyes, press forward. The long and weary winter of the race is ended. Its summer has begun. Humanity has burst the chrysalis. The heavens are before it.” -Edward Bellamy, Looking Backward
The only reason to look back is to look forward. Let your past inform your present. Learn from your mistakes and your triumphs. Ask yourself what worked, what didn’t and why? Even nostalgia if left unchecked, can be detrimental.
Today, today, today.
Forward, forward, forward.
