History is an often ignored topic by many people going into business and science fields. However, there is a lot to learn from history that can help a person throughout their life. Gary Allen is happy that he has always been a fan of history and learning about the past. Studying history teaches a lot of lessons.
One of the biggest lessons that Gary Allen thinks a study of history provides, is perspective. It teaches people the value in finding as many facts as possible about a subject and then taking the proper steps back to approach it from a broad perspective. Studying history is a study of perspective and it can help in any field, from real estate to engineering. Gary Allen knows that his study of history has helped him throughout his 42 year career in real estate in that it helped him see the bigger picture more clearly than others could.
Another reason that history is one of Gary Allen’s favorite topics is because it can be very entertaining. Some of the stories about people and events in the past are so full of intrigue, deceit, circumstance, coincidence, and so much more. Some of the best stories and events to study come from World War II and the Cold War.
For Gary Allen, the history of politics and the actions countries have taken in the past are also very interesting. He likes the primarily because it helps to make sense of the world and gives better explanations than the perspective-less media reports which focus only on the now.
