No Regrets

Two days ago I had coffee with a dear friend and fellow Heretic. We talked about making those dreaded life choices: Should I start a company? Should I quit my job? Should I join my friend’s startup? Should I…?

When you leap into the unknown, when you do something new, when you travel on a road for which you don’t have a map — for a lot of us these questions keep coming back again and again.

My friend offered one piece of advice which I can’t get out of my head:

“Whatever you do — look at the decision you’re about to make and ask yourself the question: Later in life, would you regret not taking the opportunity?”

Live a life of no regrets.

And — thank you dude. You made me think.
