Hindsight is easy. We can always imagine the opportunities we missed had we known what the future held. But short of a “Way Back Machine” there is no practical way to take advantage of past opportunities. The question is what did you do with the monetary “windfall” you had? If you used it wisely such as paying down debts or investing it in something that would increase in value then it was still a good choice. If you spent it on things with no long term payback or future savings then it was an opportunity wasted. It is always a good time to learn from our past decisions and let that guide us with future decisions. But also remember that the future is rarely a simple projection of the past to today to tomorrow. Trends can and do change and things that increased extremely rapidly in value can sometimes just as suddenly devalue. All investment has a risk factor and a potential reward. Usually the greater the potential payback the greater the risk it could go bust.
