Is it possible to head off regrets before we have them?

If you could place yourself in a situation now where you had finished work – retired if you like – and look back over how much of your time was taken up with your job, what would you be reflecting on?

If the theme that emerges is one of wishing you had spent less time at work and more time with your family and loved ones, then you would be in the majority.  As that’s what has been recorded as the number one ‘regret’ on the list – bar none.
