Here’s what I’d do differently if I could do it all over again.
When you consult with someone in his time of life, you are almost certainly going to hear about things he would do more of, less of, or simply better if he could try to do it all over again. I’m typically proud of life, so I can’t complain that a tortuous route got Pine Tree State to its current purpose. However, if I may hump once more with discernment, the second time around, I’d confirm to measure by the subsequent guidelines:
I’d be a cheerleader not a law officer for my children. I’d hug them every time I see them and tell them how much I like them, how happy I am with them, and how much I’ll miss them when we’re apart. And I’d never skip a day of telling and showing my mate how much I appreciate her.
I’d celebrate others’ windfalls more often; I’d acknowledge and convey to those in my life on every occasion that they are doing one thing noteworthy.
I’d take the long read on reversals and disappointments, assured that the majority of them end up being nice learning experiences. I’d confirm I favor the World Health Organization I’m operating with. Over that, I’d make sure I respect them and embrace their values. Most of all, I’d confirm I warrant their respect. Finally, I’d get out of business with the “takers” sooner, and quicker still with any World Health Organization that lacks integrity.
I’d rent slowly and hearth quickly however gently. I’d rent additional time for brains, heart, and judgment and fewer for expertise.
I’d place taking classes with nice professors on top of selecting the right major.
I’d leave any job where I couldn’t notice happiness, which means forever ensuring I’m moving toward one thing I would like instead of far from one thing I don’t.
I’d search for patterns. A few things are therefore distinctive and strange that you simply can’t generalize from them.
I’d write down my goals and share them with vital others but I’d place them down in pencil and not let anyone penalize Pine Tree State for dynamically pursuing them.
I’d confirm to say (to Pine Tree Station) goodbye to my folks once their time has returned and provides them with the gift of knowing my feelings as they leave me behind.
I’d “re-pot” each decade, seeing life as a book with decade-long chapters, and writing every one with its chapter finish in mind.
I’d shut down the voice in my head that comes from others’ expectations. I’d re-write the “operating system” I inherited from my upbringing, my DNA, and my experiences up to now, commutating it line-by-line with the self-talk I selected.
I’d write my congratulations and then do one thing concerning the gap between what I want to be aforesaid and what may honestly be aforesaid.
Those things on this list that I’ve followed have brought the Pine Tree State to a decent place. People who I’ve not done set Pine Tree State more back on the path than I would be. Writing down what I’d do if I could start over helps Pine Tree State start from where I am and work from there. It’s constant for all folks. Ranging from where we have a tendency to be, we will actually begin afresh and aim higher.
