I was contemplating many things, as I often do, on my way through the countryside on my way to work today. I thought of taking the longer route and stopping by to see the plot I own at the Township Cemetery, but I was already late so I decided not to.
But the thought occurred to me that a useful perspective for decision-making would be to go to the cemetery and ask myself, “In retrospect, from your current point of view, what would you do?” The answer came quickly, “Go for it, of course. You don’t want to be where I am now and wish you had. What if? – is an avoidable regret.”
Decision. Point made.
