When faced with a decision, Jeff Bezos pretends he's in the future, looking back... Will he regret taking this particular path he's considering? Will he regret NOT taking that path?

He takes the path that minimizes future regret!

I've been practicing this (since December), and I've found some amazing results...

So now, with big decisions, I always think... If I'm in the future, looking back, will I regret doing this? Will I regret NOT doing this? It helps to bring clarity to my decision-making... And I think I make better decisions for my future, too...

Best wishes,

Pretend you can see the future from the top of a building. What does it look like? What is the step off rung?

ADD this to your decision making, and look out.
