    Different approaches to reviewing the The Power of the Past by John Schuster



    Living in the moment has become a cultural obsession for many of us, but by doing so, we neglect to engage in creative reflection on our personal histories. By embracing our past, Schuster argues, we learn about ourselves, our true motives, and our real desires.

    1. Excerpting exercises. Schuster includes multiple accessible exercises in the book, ranging from learning how to accurately recall memories to life line exercise.

    2. Men’s memories. Some men get shamed for being inadequate as boys, which affects adulthood. Many studies have shown how men are falling behind women in the professional fields, and American culture is not helping.

    3. Optimal stress. While anxiety is often associated with building stress, some of it may be necessary. Learning how to recognize the differences and how to cope with them.

    4. Activating your imagination. How using imagination can help trigger growth to get us past the limits we set for ourselves and the traps we all to readily accept.

    5. Often memory is more important for leadership than planning. Understanding that how you lead comes from what you have learned is crucial to moving ahead.
