Let It Be Episode 23: Regret


In this episode I throw out the teaser at the start that I’ll share my two big regrets in life (including one that’s pretty lame) and then we get so caught up in the conversation that I never do! So here they are:

  1. The fact that I didn’t set up my business to operate without me in it when Jaden was born so I basically had zero days off work and didn’t get to enjoy the first year of his life.
  2. The fact that I only did the technique work essential for learning to swim fast in my tenth and final year of triathlon. (<< This is the lame one clearly. But man – it would have been handy to be a faster swimmer in those other nine years!)

Anyway – the conversation Brooke and I have in this episode goes to some interesting places. I share how I’m attempting to live a life without regret. Brooke admits some of her biggest regrets come from the way she has treated people and, also, how she has allowed herself to be treated. (This got me frantically scanning back through life to see if I had similar regrets.)

We talk about why looking back, regretting a decision and wishing you had more information when you made that decision is a little pointless and highlight the fact that not making a decision about something is actually making a decision … and how that’s not really a way to avoid regret!
