Seems like a simple question, right? But truth is itâ€™s far more complicated than most think. I know, for me, thereâ€™s tons of stuff Iâ€™d like to redo. Obviously, if I did that, its Butterfly Effect would cause many different outcomes â€“ one of them perhaps that may have led to my non-existence within this planet to be very honest. However, nevertheless, itâ€™s a tempting idea that if ever made possible through extreme scientific studies and actions, Iâ€™m sure many would like to hop on the bandwagon and take advantage of.
Therefore, in support and anticipation to PROJECT ALMANAC (1.30.15), Iâ€™d like to say if I could go back and change something about my life, itâ€™d have to be being a lot more empathetic about certain things and people in my life. To this day when I reminisce on all the people that have come in-and-out of my life, I really wish I had treated them with a little more respect and care, mainly women I dated. In my early twenties, I was in finance, made a lot of money, and basically ran around with a fearless and uncontrollable ego. Maybe it was youth, or perhaps the Le(g)o in me, but I lived my life as if I were way beyond the status of an alpha-male. I felt as if i were an actual lion. An apex-predator. Of course a lot of my immature behavior through time did lead to lots and lots of losses of which now at a much more mature age of forty I reflect on and wonder what would my life be right now if those same caring people from the past were still around. I know my level of friendships would be wider and a lot more sincere (than the ones I have around now), and perhaps Iâ€™d even be married as well. So, if I could go back and redo something, it would definitely be the change of attitude and heart towards a lot of people.
I was never into drugs or gang-banging or anything else that lower me or my standards as a person, just a cocky, overly-confident, egotistical prick. I did get to experience a lot in life because of my ways, but it burned me in others and for that, Iâ€™d love a PROJECT ALMANAC time machine to put a cease to it. Good news is I was humbled and really learned to not take things or others for granted!
So, now I ask you, IF YOU COULD BACK IN TIME, WHAT WOULD YOU REDO?
