Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Choose your words, for they become actions.
Understand your actions, for they become habits.
Study your habits, for they will become your character.
Develop your character, for it becomes your destiny.
If you do something that turns out wrong, you can almost always put it right, get over it, learn from it, or at least deny it.
But once you’ve missed out on something, its gone.
There will be the neighbour you never got to say the right words to, the band you never got to see live, the winning streak you never got to cheer, the brilliant retiring professor whose class you never took, the relative you never got close to. It’s a long list no matter what.
Try to keep it as short as possible
