Review

In Mitch Ablom's novel, The Five People You Meet in Heaven, one character says, "That's what heaven is. You get to make sense of your yesterdays."

Why wait?

I know, we're supposed to live in the "now," but is there any harm in a healthy review?

First, look at all the great moments in your life. Savor them; enjoy them all over again. And then figure out how you achieved them.

Then, the not-so-great moments. Don't savor them, or get stuck back into their drama. Instead, figure out how you got to that place, and what you can do differently next time.

And you don't have to go back to childhood; what can you learn this evening from what you did today?

It never hurts to review.

You'll be happier.
