Lessons Learned

Lessons Learned (Video)

This blog is different from the ones I have done in the past in that it “sets the stage” for the accompanying video rather than containing similar information.

I belong to an association called The Business Building Academy.  A regular feature of the meetings is the opportunity for members to tell of a business lesson that they have learned.

The attached video is the first Lesson Learned that I did.  It tells one of the many stories that I have experienced that emphasizes the importance of being assertive.  We must stand up for ourselves.  More importantly, we must stand up for our values.

20/20 Hindsight

20/20 Hindsight (Video)

Our vision on what we should have done is usually 20/20.  Because we know what we did and what happened because of it, we know what we should have done.

We cannot change what has already happened.  However, how often do we use the lessons learned when similar situations occur?

If we apply what we learned from 20/20 hindsight, we can greatly improve our vision of current situations.  Better vision leads to better decisions.
