Traditionally Groundhog Day is a time when onlookers wait for the groundhog to emerge from its burrow and look to see if it casts a shadow.

The ritual suggests that if the groundhog sees a shadow, we look back for 6 more weeks of winter. If there is no shadow cast, we look forward and anticipate an early spring.

Last year 16 out of 22 groundhogs from around the world suggested we look forward to spring, while the remaining six said look back to more winter. Who was right? That depends on your perspective.

Since we don’t really make decisions based on our shadows, what can we actually learn from Groundhog Day? The only certain answer is to look both ways before making a decision.

When you have something important to accomplish, looking forward gives you the opportunity to plan, motivate and move towards your goals and desires. While looking back allows you to examine past mistakes and successes so that you create a path based in experience.

Groundhog Day reminds us to look where we’ve been and where we are going to have the best of both worlds.
