Wouldn’t it be nice if we could go back and undo all those really stupid things we’ve done? I can’t imagine how different my life would be if I didn’t suffer for the idiocracy of my mistakes.
My friend said something really interesting to me last night. She said revisit and revise. For some reason it really stuck with me. It’s absolutely brilliant to me. Revisit that mistake and revise your decision. How simple is that?
I wish I could go back and fix my mess. And it sometimes seems unfortunate that we can’t just go back in time and revise those mistakes. But I am aware that we would be surprised at how many times the same opportunity, situation, or scenario presents itself. Then, we have the chance to respond correctly.
I can’t fix my first bad response. But when the same issue faces me, I can revisit last time’s failure, and revise this time’s effort. It’s genius, because when I think about it, I can always revisit and revise. All it takes is a little more readiness to do so.
