Backward v. Forward

There’s a lot we can learn from history. What’s possible. what’s worked, what hasn’t.

But looking into and shaping the future is a completely endeavor. It means learning lessons from the past and envisioning something new.

Innovation could be as simple as putting a spin on something that already exists. It could be something completely new, or combining two ideas in a new way.

The past alone cannot teach us about the future. The past is instructive, but the ultimate guide of the future is ourselves.

In a sense, the past is about learning through reflection, and the future is about creation.

What will you create?
