Life teaches us lessons every moment . If we do not learn our lessons, same situation appears again and again. In today busy life most of people operate from reaction mode rather than thinking mode. We instantly react to the situation and later on realize the damage.
The best way to address such situation is to do introspection or inner surfing. Every person should spend few minutes daily morning with himself and analyze what is my take away from yesterday. What am I supposed to learn in each areas of my life. How can I improve and implement my learning.
One good way of doing it, is to meditate in morning and at the end of meditation ask yourself about your learning and write down in a note book and implement in daily life.
