Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0981474292, Paperback)Beginning anew is often difficult because we tend to bring the past forward with us. In revisiting the past, we may seek to prove to ourselves that it was not as bad as it really was, or we may seek to forecast the future. Much of the time, however, dredging up the past is a futile effort. A new beginning needs to be just that something that is new (novel, original, fresh, innovative) and that is a beginning (start, launch, creation, commencement). In this definition of a new beginning, there is no room for the past. How do we leave the past in the past? We must recognize that we have gone as far as we can by utilizing the technology of the past; we are maxed out on the past. We have to do something different to get something different and become something different. We have to do something new to get something new. The genuinely new will never be a validation of the past. The new is a validation of the future and its unlimited potential. The future s potential is unknown because it is uncharted. The beauty of the future is that we can make our own map of it, deciding upon the destinations as we arrive at them. We must also recognize that our new might be someone else s old. However, because we will approach opportunities with our own technology and specialness, we should not be influenced by the outcomes of others. At the same time, we should do a fair amount of research to make sure we are informed about the different angles the new beginning will present. In this way, we can ensure that we are truly working to bring out the greatest potential in a new venture.
