Minimise regrets

In the last 11 months, I have interviewed more than 400 travellers, nomads, and expats. Most of these interviews ended with the question:”If you could give one piece of advice to your 20-year-old self, what would it be?” to find a regret-pattern.

And, there was one.

  • “Choose what YOU want, don’t let others decide what you want.”
  • “Don’t stress out. It’ll be just fine.”
  • “Be yourself. Don’t care what others think.”
  • “Enjoy the moment and don’t overthink living.”

Interview after interview, the pattern got clearer: People regret not expressing themselves creatively and postponing happiness to older ages.
