Without time, we can’t see both the intended and unintended consequences of our decisions unfold. And without memory, we would not be able to benchmark the present or predict the future.

Creating and maintaining a time-stamped record of our memories is fundamental to helping us learn and grow from our past experiences. It also allows us to build confidence in ourselves as we inevitably stumble across the conclusion that we will always figure it out.
