You can’t effectively move forward while looking back. This is why your car windshield is much bigger than your rear view mirror. The past is important, but it must only be a point of reference. What’s MOST important is what’s happening NOW and what lies AHEAD. So make a conscious effort to give TODAY and FORWARD most of your energy and attention.
Philippians 3:13, 14 – English Standard Version
Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.
