It mean that you can look in the past (hindsight) and see what you did wrong. Perfect vision is 20/20. So as you look back, you're able to see "perfectly" what you should have done. "Hindsight is 20/20"

Hindsight is when you look back on a situation. For example, its said that hindsight is 20/20. That means that when looking back on a situation, you can really see all the possibilities that you didn't see at the time. Hindsight is to see events that have occurred as being more predictable than they were before they took place.

Meaning : Understanding a thing, event, after it has happened. Hindsight is always 20-20.
