Crisis Looking Backwards

Interesting interview on CNN with CDC (Centers for Disease Control) Director Dr. Thomas Frieden on the Ebola crisis.  Revealing quote from him which applies to every leader who has faced these type of challenges:

“I wish I had know then what we know now. But that’s not how the world works. We live life forwards and we understand it backwards. Looking back with 20/20 hindsight, there are always things we would do differently.”
