Best Advice You’ve Ever Been Given [NYT OPINION]

For me it’s, “Discipline = Freedom”.

A few years ago, I crowdsourced an entire book, called “The World According to Twitter.” Every night for 100 nights, I tweeted a provocative question; I published the best responses. (Sample question: “Supply the subject line of an email you really, really don’t want to open.” Sample answer, from @pumpkinshirt: “To my former sexual partners, as required by law.”)

But one response changed my life. I asked: “What’s your greatest regret?” And @susanchamplin replied that regret was her only regret. “Wise advice: You made the best decision you could with the information you had at the time.”

@Pogue I regret all the time I wasted regretting. Wise advice: “You made the best decision you could w/the information you had at the time.”
