Beware of Hindsight After The Crisis Has Passed

Hindsight is 20/20 they say.

And they’re right.

Because once you have all the facts and have also been able to observe the results of any decisions made earlier, it’s usually pretty clear what actions should or should not have been taken.

But right now, many people, including me, are making big decisions without the luxury of having all the information we need.

When this is all in the past, we absolutely must review all decisions made during this crisis. That’s the only way to can hope to learn from our past.

But we must equally resist the temptation to throw stones at those who had to make decision in the heat of battle, without the luxury of hindsight.
