Confucius say; “He who hesitates is lost.” Well, it may not have been Confucius, but close enough.

Today’s daily prompt question. What inaction do you wish you’d done differently?

I get the reason. With luck and introspection we learn from our mistakes. Inaction is not different than poor action. It can be wrong and we can learn from it. I think most of the time I regret calling out someone for treating another human being poorly. The cure is to step up the next time and the next time after that.

However, mostly I try not to regret inaction. It’s water under the bridge. Move on with out beating yourself up or living with much regret. Take the lesson, apply to the next opportunity. Life is too short.
