Hindsight Is A Wonderful Thing!

….And The 12 Lessons You Can Learn From Hindsight

(Vita Vilcina)

Well, hindsight is a wonderful thing if we use it to help us to move forward with purpose.

Have you ever noticed that people come out with this phrase almost with a certain degree of regret in their voice. But it shouldn’t be like that.

Look, what’s happened has happened. Learn from it and move on.

Yes. You’ve made lots of mistakes along the way, and no doubt you wish you had made this decision or that decision instead.
So what? Remember, you’re on a journey.

Actually, you’re on 2 journeys – your online business journey, and your life journey.

Embrace your mistakes because they’re not really mistakes. They are decisions you made at a time when you had limited resources at your disposal.

The reality is that we should be using hindsight to help us to move forward with a lot more purpose, confidence and intent.

So here’s some lessons hindsight has a knack of teaching that we can implement from hereon in:-

1. You can’t do everything.

2. You can’t do everything by yourself.

3. Outsource as much as reasonably possible.

4. People are unreliable.

5. Make sure you are reliable – to other people and to yourself.

6. Exercise every day.

7. Sleep sensible hours – every day.

8. Drink more water.

9. Make love more often.

10. Laugh more.

11. Laugh more at your mistakes

12. Laugh even more, if you can.

One over-riding thing that seems to cover all of the above, is time.

Tasks and projects always take (or seem to take) much longer to implement/complete. This is a major source of frustration.

In 3., above, we refer to outsourcing, a big time saver if implemented properly.

Ideally, we all want to offload those menial, administrative-type tasks so we can concentrate on the good stuff – and we can, but we have to put in the work first to enable us to do this – and then we can reap the benefits.

So, the more we can channel our efforts into the activities that give us the quickest returns and/or greater returns, the more efficient we become.
