Look Back to Look Forward

Ever feel the pressure to solve a problem?
Hey we all do, more than we realise.
The challenge I've taken up is to take the time to look back and ask myself the question, "How have they solved this problem in the past?"
Bruce D. Johnson, puts it this way... "So as you look at your company or organization and your current problems or opportunities, what are some of the best ideas you had or that worked three or five or ten years ago that might create a possible solution today? Remember: sometimes the past can be the key to unlocking your future!"
Hey and King Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived affirms this approach to problem solving, he wrote : "What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun..." Ecclesiastes 1:9.
Hope that helps you next time you're trying to nut out a problem you're facing.
