I have always been a huge fan of the quotes and more so the thought process each quote generates and make us contemplate. The above quote manages to bring in a few such thoughts….
We are all so proud of our past, sometimes it becomes an impediment for us to go out and try something new.
- Our past is not a reflection of what we are going to be the future. If that was the case Lincoln would never be the president, Einstein never a scientist and Bill Gates never the richest man!
- The bad news – The past is not equal to the present or the future, for anything new, the start is afresh. No one cares if we are great or the best in our previous assignments, NOW takes a greater precedence!
- The good news – the past is not equal to the present, no matter how much one has screwed up in the past, it is not a pointer to anything in the present or future. We can always make a fresh start and with a changed approach things are bound to be different.
I think a fancy quote is way beyond words, it is the questions and answers it can generate! 🙂
