What Do You Wish You Had Done that You Didn’t Do?

In Mentor Like Jesus, Regi Campbell writes about some people in their 90s who were surveyed a few years ago and asked this question:

“What are three things you wish you had done that you didn’t do?”


These people responded with a number of answers. The three most prevalent responses were:

“Take more risk.”

“Reflect more.”

“Focus more on things that will live beyond me.”

I have thought about how I might answer this question. I probably would say, “Focus more on what I desire to do and not allow fear to hold me back.”

How would you answer this question?

  1. I wish I had lived with less fear and more courage in my early years. But, I think it took living through a few things to get to the point of being able to live in a more open and trusting way. So, it’s all good!

  2. Connie, it is amazing how powerful fear itself can be. I’ve been amazed at how deceptive it is. Really difficult to detect at times, much less address. Thanks!
