Living with regrets

“Choosing a career is like choosing a wife from ten girlfriends. Even if you pick the most beautiful, the most intelligent, the kindest woman, there is still the pain of losing the other nine.” _Luis Aguilar


Eventually you have to land somewhere. 

You can’t do it all and you can’t be everywhere. 

And the choice is usually not between lesser evils, it is between the good and the greater good. 

This means you will have to learn to live with regrets. 

But in the end, giving your all and giving your best to a few worthy things that really and truly make a difference is a thousand times better than wasting your life on a buffet of meaningless trivialities and minor achievements which, like footprints at the ocean, are soon washed away and forgotten. 

The ONE THING for today: No matter what you do, you will have to live with regrets.  The good news is that you get to choose most of them…choose well.
