Advice for the Entrepreneur: Lee’s Tip #77

25 Mar 2014 Uncategorized

Regrets…we all have some. There is a country song called Hillbilly Girl with the Blues that says, “I was offered things I was too green to refuse.” A regret, by its very nature, is a crossroads you came to where a decision was made. It’s easy to rationalize: “I was young”; “I didn’t know”; or “I’m new at business.” While all of those things may be true, it’s time to stop the regret merry-go-round. Sometimes I backslide with my own advice, and my mind says, “If only I had kept that five-bedroom home with a swimming pool I sold when I went to New York…” or “If only I hadn’t gone into business with those scoundrels…”. If only. Remember, it was your decision at the time; you can’t undo it. Stop agonizing over it. Don’t blame others. Keep your eyes on the prize, which is a sound business plus a sound family life.
