Some thoughts on a Popular Maxim

“Never Look Back”

My thoughts on the wisdom of this shift from day to day. On one hand, we can say that looking back makes it easy to see how far we have come. On the other hand, it is easy to keep looking back for so long that we forget to look ahead and miss some very important opportunities. It makes sense pragmatically to never look back as it isn’t necessary in regards to progress, shedding light on the wisdom this maxim holds. But on the other hand, why move forward if you can’t look back?
