What Didn't You Do?

Kit Grant's newsletter arrived in my inbox and as usual Kit was intent on taking his reader out of their comfort zone! The focus of this email was in doing things that you really want to do ... making things happen! Some time ago I wrote a blog entry about Living Your Life With No Regrets and the concept is much the same.

Here is what Kit had to say ...

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do." ... Mark Twain.

No regrets would be a great way to lead one's life, wouldn't it? What is holding you back from getting the great results you deserve either personally or professionally? ... well ... it's usually you and what you're telling yourself. People who are "waiting" for just the right time may not be around when it arrives. Make 2008 even better than planned by acting on your imagination. What's your "thing" you've been thinking about? Travel to some exotic location, write a book, record a song, volunteer at a shelter, call that friend you haven't spoken to in a long time, visit a relative, say thank you or I'm sorry? ... whatever it is ... do it sometime this year ... you'll be glad you did.

I have many entries around this theme, have talked about setting goals and how Time Goes so Fast but Kit's idea is even easier than that. One theme here is making things happen while we are still able, but equally important is making things happen before other people are beyond knowing! Life is full of decision points ... will you make the right ones?
