3 months ago, I resigned to my job and applied to the company where I am right now. And as a new employee, of course, I have to learn every transactions, that I will be doing alone in the future. The person whose giving me turnovers, often told me "If you are not sure with your entries, go back to the past transactions"
Many times, if I am not sure with what I'm doing, I just go back to the past, and proceed with my work. But one day, I got tired of looking back. I realized, if from the very start I studied the concept why a certain transaction came up, there's no need for me to go back over and over again. It causes me delays looking back.
And It is the same things that happened in our real life too. As we keep on looking back, it sometimes, wastes our time. And worst is, it could bring us pains. We could never start over if we're not letting go of our past. We could never move forward if we keep looking back. I'm not saying looking back is bad. It will be bad, if it holds you. If you could't move ahead because of it. In accounting, historical transaction is just a reference, not an event to live by.
So what's apostles Paul said about the past?
Leave what is behind, and strain toward what is ahead.Philippians 3:13
