Listening today to my favourite album of the immortal Don Henley, these lyrics from his classic “Boys of Summer” struck me.
“A voice inside my head said don't look back - you can never look back”
It’s been so true in my career and indeed my life.
Good memories are priceless and wonderful - we must cherish them … BUT sometimes I think looking back can be a negative thing because we may be hankering for something good that will not happen again – it’s gone - finished – history.
We have to learn from our experiences and then look at today and the future as far as I’m concerned.
I’d always rather be saying ‘what might be’ than ‘what might have been’
“Never look back” – co-incidentally Don Henley’s words are also appropriate today for Fabio Capello.
