Frank, aka PCGuy, has published another one of his Truthful Tuesday posts, and this week Frank wants to know…
Would you jump at the chance to go back and correct some of the errors you made in your youth, even if it meant fundamentally changing who you are now?
As Queen sang in their song “We Are the Champions,” …and bad mistakes, I’ve made a few. And some of those mistakes were, indeed, doozies. So sure, in some fantasy world, it might be nice to call a Mulligan and get a do-over.
But overall, I feel that lived a pretty good life and I’d be concerned about the Butterfly Effect of going back and “fixing” those mistakes. The Butterfly Effect, as you know, is the phenomenon where a small change in starting conditions can lead to vastly different outcomes.
So, a small change to something that happened in my past might mean that the life that I’ve lived, and that I’m happy with, might be vastly different than what it is.
And as the old saying goes, Don’t mess with success.
