It’s a sad reality that “history is doomed to repeat itself” is in fact true. It’s telling of the narrative of our world, as humans, we seem to have such a hard time learning from the past.

Oh yes, we love to read about the past, we love to watch a good TV show based on events from the past, we like to learn about it, but we don’t really learn FROM it.

Generation after generation, culture after culture, people after people make the same mistakes over and over again.

Why? Why can’t we take the time to read about, study, and actually LEARN from the past? People are not all that different.

I think that sometimes we get hung up on how “different” other peoples and cultures are to really learn from them. This is a mistake, a mistake we really shouldn’t have to make over and over.

People have been on this earth a while, and have struggled with the same raw problems for thousands of years.

I know for me, the more I read, the more I understand, the more I learn about others, the better I’m able to interpret who I am, and the place I have in the world of today.

Let’s all take a bit more time, go a bit slower, and pay a bit more attention to the world around us, not just today, but from our history as well. I think we’ll all be better for it.

Onward,

Wisdom is to be gained from learning from the past.

It’s unfortunate that “history is doomed to repeat itself.” What would happen if we all spent more time learning and less time telling?

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: http://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    P.S.
    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    Regards
    Jan Zac
