Ask yourself what would have happened if you had not done what you actually did, or if you had made the opposite choice.


Have you ever done the same?

Second guessed yourself?

I'm sure you have.

(and I know many people who do it routinely...)

Do you beat yourself up over what might have been?

But how do you REALLY know?

That's the question.

And that's the problem.

You don't know.

What would, or would not, have happened if you had crossed the road at that exact moment?

What would, or would not, have happened if you never asked that girl to dance?


What would, or would not, have happened if you had never "taken that chance" and gone off into business for yourself?

And on, and on, and on...

You can drive yourself nuts thinking of all the possibilities and permutations.


The thing is -- -- that you are where you are because of the choices that you made, knowingly or unknowingly.

You CANNOT predict what exactly will, or will not, happen.

You just have to roll with the punches and deal with what is presented to you.

So make the best choices you can.

Pursue the path you want to be on.

Fight for the outcomes you want to have.


I have and Failure or Success, I made choices


Did those Choices Pay off?



Maybe not.

But I'm thrilled that I did.

Planning is Only Half the Battle 

You've planned your day. The schedule is set. You're ready to do this, right?


Not yet, according to Craig Jarrow, author of the blog, Time Management Ninja. You also need to prepare.

Think of planning as the first phase and preparation the second. Here are six tips Jarrow offers to help you with preparation:

  1. Do it the night before. Preparing the night before allows you time to get everything organized and take care of any missing pieces. Waiting until the "day of" can lead to a last-minute scramble (ever scrambled to find a missing item on your way out the door?).

  2. Do it well in advance whenever possible. This is especially important when preparing for a big event. Gather materials several days beforehand. Getting everything together early allows more time to remedy any unforeseen issues.

  3. Do the (pre) work. Preparation is all about doing as much of the work as possible in advance. Read the materials, review the data, and practice the activity. When the time comes to do the work, you'll be ready.

  4. Save time. Don't allow yourself to believe you don't have time to prepare. Good preparation saves time by reducing errors and helping to prevent the need to re-do mistakes. It also shortens activities. For example, a well-prepared meeting takes less time to conduct.

  5. Reduce stress. Being prepared means being confident. That means less for you to worry about, which reduces stress.

  6. Make it a habit.

Practice preparation part of your lifestyle, rather than just on occasion. You'll reap the benefits every day.
