What do you think?

“At the end of the day, when you’re eighty years old and looking back on your life, you want to have minimized the number of regrets you have. That’s what should drive people. Not how much money they have. It’s regrets that I think haunt people at the end of their life.”

Another cut from Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon. What do you think? It is easy to say YEAH money is not that important… but when everyone seems to think otherwise, it can be difficult to co-exist with them. Will you regret never having made enough money to indulge…?

But the part about minimising regrets is interesting when it comes to decision making… It can mean “don’t do it” for the risk averse, and “just do it” for the adventurous.

On most days I am all pumped up to do my own thing, but lately I have been researching companies to work for… (??)

    Just a word of wisdom from someone who got into the big bad world of biz at the age of 22 in Malaysia. Thoughts are the main drive of your destiny. Be a constant learner to improve upon who you are. Play your age to your advantage and not your disadvantage. Best of Luck!!!
