No regrets

You said life is full of one-time offers. I disagreed, but you were busy, so I did not explain. I will now:

Life is not full of one-time offers, nor is it full of ongoing offers.

Offers are rare and, when they come, they often distract us from what we really want.

It’s not just a matter of seizing each opportunity as it arises. It’s not that simple. We also need to ask: what future opportunity is closed to us by the act of seizing this one? What can not happen if I make this happen? What can happen if I don’t?

Live with no regrets.

I should quit trying.
