World’s looking back on 2010

After every Christmas, we look forward to ushering in the brand new year that’s filled with endless possibilities.

I’ve always personally felt that, in order to move forward, we must first examine the past. No, not to engage in self-reproach or wallow in previous spills, but to review the events and see what we have done well, what we could have done better, and apply these realizations to the new year.

Time provides one of the best distances, allowing us to better look at past events in a more objective manner, allowing us to be more truthful to ourselves.

Before I turn the examining lens to my 2010, let’s see this from a wider perspective – globally. Here’s an interesting video from Google, which nicely sums up the world’s year in under three minutes.

Reminding ourselves of the major happenings that occurred this year. Victories celebrated, challenges conquered, lessons learnt and passings mourned.

And then, we move forward.
