Down Memory Lane

By chance on a recent working visit to London we found ourselves staying round the corner from a fish and chip shop we used to visit regularly whilst we lived in London many years ago. We had a great time (and a great chippy tea!) walking down memory lane, thinking back to days that somehow seemed simpler and less stressful. In reality, I’m not sure those times were actually quite how we remembered them but we had a nice evening remembering that time. In particular, as it was many years ago it was interesting to reflect on where we are now and how that time influenced that journey.

  • Do you dwell on the past too much, either focusing too much on past failures or wondering how you can ever top past successes?
  • How do you use the past to help you learn and develop what you do?
  • What past events have influenced your thinking for things happening in the present?
  • How can the past be a force for good when thinking about the present and the future?

What do you see?

How can the clip be used as a metaphor for something that is happening in your life (good or bad)? 

What does it spark inside you in terms of seeing a new way forward you had not previously considered?

Let me know how you used the image
