Open Thread: Regrets, I've had a few ...

Happy Friday. A busy week here, looking forward to downing tools for the weekend.

The discussion with Daniel Pink landed yesterday and I thought we might use this week’s thread to talk about regret.

As he says in the book “Regret, done right, it needn’t drag us down; it can lift us up.”

Of course I’m not asking for your deepest and darkest regrets, like Leo’s elevator. Something you’re more comfortable sharing—it might be a career mis-step, a moment of weakness as a parent (or as a child), or an “inaction regret,” a moment where you should have taken that leap.

Would love to know what you’ve learned from it too, if anything.

I’ll go first.
