Regret

We all have them - and as pointed out in Daniel Pink's book The Power of Regret - we can use them as fuel to improve. No one is Perfect.


There was a World Regret Survey where they solicited feedback from aged people from all over the world - 70+ - on looking back on their lives - what they regretted the most.


Though the answers we far ranging - they all basically fell into 4 categories:


Moral - Didn't do the Right thing.


Relational - Didn't reach out to repair a relationship.


Boldness - Didn't take a chance.


And the 4th - the largest category of Regret for people at the end of their lives (and the entire reason I am writing this post) was:


Foundational - Didn't do the work.


Didn't put in the Time or Effort necessary to grow and expand the full potential of their lives.


Ouch. A Hard reality to face at the end of our time on earth.


Took it easy, coasted, and created their greatest Regret.


Success (or Failure) is never immediate - it is the culmination of all these days, months, and years that can lull us into a false sense of security that the daily Effort doesn't Matter.


Everything Matters - ESPECIALLY the Effort.


Today.
