“‘Why not?’ is a slogan for an interesting life.”
-Mason Cooley, late American educator and aphorist
Regret is a terrible thing. When questioned about their lives, virtually all elderly people indicate that they most regret the things they did not do, rather than what they did.
In my coaching, I encourage my clients to have a “Try it On” attitude, in which they intentionally explore ideas and strategies that may not exactly fit within their comfort zones. In some cases, these ideas fit better than they think, or need only a bit of tailoring.
Where and in what ways could you lead a more interesting and rewarding life by asking yourself, “Why Not?”
