We get a new job and start as if we are the first one to have this job.
We enter a new relationship and start as the person has had no relationships before.
We handle a new client and start proposing solutions immediately.
Whenever we start something new, we start As if we are the start.
And there was nothing before us.
And in that process we rarely stop and ask about history.
What worked, what didn’t work, why didn’t it work and what is there for us to learn.
Instead, we start with a clean slate.
And end up repeating the same history on that slate.
History exists for a reason.
For us to learn from it.
To create a better history.
