013. Our Biggest Regret After Years in the Classroom

March 26, 2020

Have you ever reflected on your past and thought, I regret doing that as a kid, or I regret not going out more and being with my friends? Chances are there is probably something out there that resonances with you in this fashion. There is a quote that reads, There are no regrets in life, just lessons.

This cannot be more true for everyone. Our lives no matter how imperfect they belong to us. It is what has molded us to the person we are today. Instead of dwelling on your regrets in life, think of them as life lessons that will help to guide your future. 

We cannot change the past, but we have every bit of power to change the future. 


[5:26] Spending large amounts of time and money

[ 7:45] Creating Resources and Materials

[12:16] Keeping up with the Jones’

[17:16] Staying late to get things done

[20:32] What do we wish we had done?


We will always make decisions in our lives and careers that will not fit our goals. What is important to remember is that we cannot dwell on the past and the decisions that have already been made. It is better to see those decisions as life lessons and begin making a change that will continue to make our future brighter.
