In the middle of New York City, a black board was hung with the simple directive:
WRITE YOUR BIGGEST REGRET
People approached somewhat apprehensive but then began to pick up the chalk and jot down their thoughts. Initially, the thoughts were as varied as those who were writing them. Then, as the chalkboard became crowded with the things for which people were sorry, a pattern emerged.
The pattern: NOT.
The things listed were almost all exclusively something someone had NOT done, said, tried or pursued.
While some of the regrets could no longer be righted, some could.
And, even for those of us who might pencil in something that cannot be revisited, each and every day brings new opportunities.
Think about what you might regret NOT doing and get busy doing it!
