When I quizzed my daughters about things they'd like a second chance at, they came up with:
- Things they've said to people
- Friends they've chosen
- Bad decisions
And of course I said yes. Because sometimes lessons learned are good and we wouldn't trade them, but how cool if we could get the lesson AND get a do-over. :)
Rejection is a bit like a re-do. "Getting" the chance to re-evaluate our work and see if there is any room for improvement. And of course there is. There always is. I've not heard of an author yet who didn't have some sort of regret for some part of their book. Maybe it's just them being humble. Maybe it's the truth. But no matter what, I believe there is always a place for improvement.
And redo's. :)
What do you think? What would you redo if you were given the chance?
