What if?

I speak a lot about regrets, or, more precisely, about the importance of having no regret.

When a wannabe-entrepreneur tries to figure out if he should start his project or not, he weights a bunch of criteria like the investment it takes, the fear of losing your current job and its reliable stream of stable revenues, the family or the mortgage you have to take care of, what people are going to think if he fails (dude, who cares?), the timing that’s never right, etc...


But there’s a criterion that is always underrated:
What if you don’t do it?

How can you spend the next decades of your life dealing with the paramount and irreversible burden of the regrets that come with not having tried?

Starting something new out of your comfort zone is never easy.
Yet, it’s easier than not giving it a try.
