Next Time

“The principle of ‘next time’ is one of the most practical, liberating concepts that can help you change your orientation to influencing other people. If you focus on the past, all you can do is feel bad. What already happened cannot be changed. But a different future can be created. Next time I can be wiser. Next time I can try harder. Next time, if I see things differently, I can respond differently. There is hope in ‘next time’. The positive approach to discipline focuses 20 percent on what went wrong, and 80 percent on what could be different next time.”  (Blaine Lee, Author of ‘The Power Principle)
