There comes a time when we can only look back, so we need to leave
something of value to look back on?

I don't disagree with your observations, but I would only observe that there is a time and a place. In other words, it is a function of time. So...there comes a time when living in the present is reflecting on the past (similar to what you said). The main difference being, it is one of the final stages of life. To engage in this too prematurely is to err.
