The biggest regret

Doing something that really counts involves hard work, patience, the willingness to learn, focus and sticking to the plan no matter what others think. It takes pain and a willingness to sacrifice short-term gratification and ignoring quick fixes. There is little choice in this if we want our work to stand out and make a difference with what we do.

What that work is though is entirely our choice and there is no wrong choice here. What matters to us is personal and what others think is irrelevant.

The biggest regret we will have in life at the end of our journeys is that we didn’t choose to do something that matters and we didn’t make the sacrifices to achieve this and settle for the quick fix. There it is too late, we won’t be able to turn back the clocks.

What we do today will build the future and the legacy we want and will help us avoid big regrets.

  1. Yuk! I’m not fond of regrets. I want to do all I can right now to [at the end] have lived my highest and best life. Having a strong sense of accomplishment helps!!!
