Make War With A Multitude of Counselors


What you really want to do is never make any big mistakes. Little experimental tests that fail? Yes, those can actually be helpful. But avoid catastrophic mistakes…Like the billionaire Warren Buffett says, “An investor needs to do very few things right as long as he or she avoids big mistakes.” That is true about all areas of the good life: health, wealth, love, and happiness.

Getting The Lost Years Back

Imagine if you could have back the years you wasted on a bad marriage or dating the wrong person. Or recover the years of your life you lost to being overweight and unhealthy.

Or get back the money you lost on bad investments or the pursuit of the wrong career.

Or the happiness lost spending time around people who ended up betraying you in the end.

The greatest wish of every human is to be able to have their wasted years back.

But time moves forward.

I just finished The Theory of Everything by the great Stephen Hawking.

He says he was wrong.

He used to think that at the end of the universe, about ten thousand million years from now, time would reverse, the universe would contract and Benjamin Button would come true.

You would be old before you were young. You would age in reverse.

But he says he was wrong. Hawking says there are three forms of time: thermodynamic, cosmological, and psychological.

And he says unfortunately for us, all three are moving forward, never backwards.

On Essay Chapter 6, he states, “Disorder increases with time because we measure time in the direction in which disorder increases. You can’t have a safer bet than that.”

Haha, that is a physicists attempt at humor.

So you and I are left with no way to undo or redo our mistakes.

So cut your big mistakes to the absolute minimum because mistakes bring regret.

And your happiness is lost from too much regret…
