Naturally we have to ignore the awkward fact that the smartest thing is all too often only obvious in hindsight, but never mind.
– Iain M. Banks, Surface Detail
You can only make the best of every situation you are in or have created yourself. What to do to make the certain situation better will always change and there is no clear recipe to follow. The one thing we should always do is to learn from the situation and what we did to create it. Especially if the situation turned out great, then you should really sit down and think about what you did to create it.
