Why We Should Learn From The Past And Not Bring It To The Present With Keshav Mehta

Don’t bring the whole past to the present. Learn from your past mistakes… Don’t do the same mistake again! 

Learn from those mistakes. Never do them again. Learn from past achievements. Remember how you got them. Apply those theories to your present work. But, you should not keep recalling these things. Just load the necessary information only when you need it. A computer program always tries to load only the specific set of data it needs to do that specific work. If not, it will be a waste of resources! Just like in computers, we also waste our time and energy by thinking about unnecessary stuff!

The big problem…

Most of us spend a lot of time thinking about our past and the future. We keep recalling the past, we keep planning for the future. But does we give much time to our present? The simple answer is NO! What we do now becomes the past… Our future reaches us and become present. But we don’t give much time for the present!!! It’s the most important part of the time!

According to Keshav,

Yesterday is History…

We spend a lot of time thinking about our past. We are worried about our past mistakes. We are delighted and keep recalling our past achievements. But what you don’t know is, the past… You can’t change it… It’s gone… Over… Won’t come again!!! So, there’s no point to spend so much time thinking about it!

Today is a Gift! That’s why it’s called the Present!

No matter what happened in the past, no matter what’s there in store for you in the future, now you are in the present! No one has invented the time machine yet so you have to live in the present! If you always think about the past while living in the present, then you are a broken fool. If you always think about the future while living in the present, then you are just a dreamer.

Learn from the past…

Whenever you are doing the same thing again, use the past experience to do it better this time. Never do the same mistake twice! But do not waste your time thinking (recalling) the past!

Set goals for the future…

Not having a proper goal is dumb. It’s like just walking on the road without having a destination. You need to set some basic goals. But not crazy one like “I’m going to have a 2 million dollar salary by the end of 2016!” That’s completely insane! People will think you are a fool!


There are several reasons why so many entrepreneurs remain dreamers and never do. The most common ones include:

  • Fear
  • Lack of Focus
  • Not Hungry
  • Engulfed in Past

The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.
