This is usually meant as a derogatory comment about the way an individual thinks or acts.
However, the ability to think backwards is critically important.
For, example you may want to be more productive and live a happy and fulfilled life.
Who doesn’t want that?
To live a happy, fulfilled and productive life you need to consistently determine the most important thing which you can do in any given moment. Then, you need to get it done.
In order to determine the most important thing which you could be doing, you must know where you are trying to get to i.e. your purpose.
Simply put, you in order to decide what is most important now you must have your eye on the bigger picture i.e. the end goal.
Before there can be a most important task in the now; you must have a clearly defined purpose for your life.
To enable you to live your purpose, you need to have long-term goals which are in turn broken down into medium and short term goals.
This allows you to focus on those small actions which will complete your short-term goals.
Completion of your short-term goals leads to completion of your medium-term goals which in turn leads to completion of your long-term goals and so on.
But before you can design the right path for your life, you must start with your purpose and work backwards.
So, don’t be afraid to be a backward thinker. In fact, I highly encourage it.
