There's nothing wrong with “living in the now”—except that it's only part of our story. If we underuse or misuse our past, we're losing a tremendous source of wisdom and self-knowledge. The problem isn't the past itself, it's that we don't use it well.

John Schuster exposes the many ways we ignore, distort, or become captive to our pasts and explains how we can tap into this underutilized treasure trove. He shows how to systematically recall key images and experiences that have influenced us, for good or ill, and reclaim the positive experiences—deepen our understanding of their impact and use them to guide our going forward. The negative experiences must be recast—reinterpreted so that they no longer lessen our possibilities but rather serve to expand our understanding of who we are and what we can be. Schuster's enlightening and entertaining stories as well as simple and compelling techniques will enable you to make your past sing and play and work for you.
