When I read a news story about a company trying to resurrect the glory days by trying to buck the current trend, or bring back old products, I cannot help but laugh.
- No MySpace, you are not going to be cool again, people have moved on.
- No Sony, people are not going to start buying music again, they’ve chosen Spotify.
- No horse drawn carriage company, people drive cars now…and minivans.
Progress is about moving forward. You can only move forward if you look forward. The only thing to be learned from looking backwards is a lesson.
