The choices you make today will determine your future and where you will be few years down the line. In the end, you will regret things you wanted to do today but did not and the choices you ended up taking today. We have heard many people saying that they don’t regret the things they have done but they regret things they didn’t do when in fact they had the chance! Each one of us does end up regretting something or the other when we look back in life. However, here is the list of few choices that you can regret in 10 years:
- NOT PUTTING DOWN YOUR PHONE AND BE PHYSICALLY PRESENT
Nowadays we are so involved in our phones that we actually forget what conversation was going on, who was saying what and what did you just put in your mouth. You don’t care who walked into the room and who walked out. Make a note not to check your phone when you are in a company. After all, that Facebook post can wait.
- NOT TAKING CHARGE OF YOUR OWN LIFE
You may have spent enough time doing what your family wanted you to do, meeting their expectations and fulfilling their wishes. However, if you don’t get satisfaction from it and there is something else you want to pursue just go for it. Follow your dreams.
- SPEND MORE TIME WITH YOUR LOVED ONES
It is basic human nature to take the people we love for granted. However, make a point to spend enough time with your parents and your siblings. The time spent with them is always special and you may regret later of not giving them enough time that they deserved. Simplify your lifestyle and enjoy what truly matters.
- STOP TRYING TO IMPRESS OTHERS
Don’t do certain stuff just to impress others. Do what you want to do and what makes you happy. Stop caring about what others will perceive your actions to be.
- WAITING FOR TOMORROW TO GET THINGS DONE
Curb that laziness and get things done swiftly. Time management is the key to achieving success. However, it may happen that one day you wake up to find that you have got no time to work on the things you always wished to do. So start working on your goals today itself.
- NOT SPEAKING OUT WHAT YOU REALLY FEEL
Always speak what you actually feel. Don’t speak others words. Let others know what your thinking is, what your reasons are and what your take on certain things is. Not speaking out what you actually feel will lead you to do things you never wanted to. Stand up for yourself and speak out.
- NOT LEARNING NEW THINGS
Never stop learning. There are so many things to learn in this world that it would never end. Keep exploring and keep learning. It is the key to achieving personal growth.
- NOT BEING FINANCIALLY INDEPENDENT
Be financially independent. Work towards achieving that. Few years down the line you may regret not working a little more and working towards increasing your revenue. There is nothing cool about being dependent on your parents.
