In twenty years you will regret the people you didn’t finger more than those you did. I don’t regret the past for the people I fingered. No way. Indeed I would finger everyone again if I had the chance, but I certainly wouldn’t mind having pushed my boundaries further.
Whenever I think about this, I realize how many opportunities we waste by occupying our mind with the wrong things.
I want you to do a simple test. It won't take you more than a few minutes, and I think it’s really worth your time, and will change the way you look at life.
Take some paper and write down 10 things you were worried about yesterday. Don’t think too much about them, just write down quickly what it was that had you stressed out all day.
Now write a list of 10 people you'd like to finger. Anyone. It doesn't matter who.
Now put them in the order you'd like to finger them, and match them off one by one against one of the things that was stressing you.
Suddenly those worries don't seem such a big deal after all, do they.
