Your Then, Someone Else's Now
We all know that phrase: I wish I knew then what I know now.
We've all probably said it at least once in our lives.
But what we often forget is that our THEN...
...is always someone else's NOW.
There is always someone who has been where you are now. Someone who now has a wealth of knowledge and experiences. Someone from whom you can learn.
You can always reap the benefits of someone else's experiences, successes and failures. The key is to find them when you need them and listen to them.
Who do you have in your life who is the NOW to your THEN?
