Imagine that the world was perfect and there were no mistakes, wouldn’t that be boring? Going through the same old routines every day over and over again with no change whatsoever will not lead to the future you want.

Sometimes it can take years and a lot of mistakes before you learn how to make your business run well all day, every day.
Besides, even if you do have regrets, you can still live your life in a way so that you avoid having serious regrets in the future. Decide that whatever mistakes you make in the future, you will study them, and learn from them.
