This morning, for the first time in perhaps close to a year, I read Seths Blog. I discovered that he had a new book coming out soon called The Song of Significance. I was reminded of what it was like when I first read Seths blog over a decade ago. I then got thinking about … Continue reading Worth looking back on
Exploring something new and avoiding regression
Sometimes when things change we spend time hoping and wishing for the the way things once were. But then when things return to the old way, it doesn't quite feel the way we thought it would.

How it started

In the process of making a difficult decision I turned to the words of Seth Godin for guidance. I found a few useful posts on sunk costs and it made me realise one of the things I needed to stop considering. The past.
