I regret not learning all about the internet earlier! as I would be rich now lol!
I'm with you guys on this.
I've been marketing online since 2001, so I feel I got in fairly early. But I have not been consistent in my efforts.
What I regret is a lack of persistent, focused effort. It's so easy to be sidetracked and distracted, with so many options.
I regret not learning to use an air brush when I was younger. (That's not my 'greatest' regret, but it's one that still plagues me.) Still gonna learn that some day. I've been trapped in black and white most of my artistic life.
Not applying to medical school to take a shot at being a physician. I thought about it years ago when I was in my early 40's, but thought I was too old. Now at 55, I wish I would have tried.......
What Is Your Biggest Regret?
I joined hubpages two years ago but wasted one year or so in between not writing hubs and that is my biggest regret.
I regret my Mom's persistence in getting me out of the draft lottery in '69 without my knowledge. Still pissed over that one.Only lotto I ever won. LOL
There are several people I wish I'd punched in the mouth.
Not joining Hubpages sooner?
Aw come on, someone had to say it.
There are probably a hundred or more things I regret, the main one being passing up acting to be a writer... I could have had the best of both worlds and maybe writing my own movies and staring in them, damn you mom! Why did you tell me acting would be a bad choice and to do something valuable with my life.... ah geez I was just bullshitting...
I really regret getting married at 16 and not knowing how to manage money, had I done things right then, I wouldnt be having to start all over a second time.
Nothing to regret with this one ... at least now you're armed. And potentially loaded ...
As for me ho hum. None really. Whilst I've had a shitty and eventful life at times I don't regret a thing. Would do it all again. Besides - a lot of it has been rather inetresting.
All things lead to now. And right now I'm content. Sliding doors and all that
Starting over is rough, but imagine a life where you could only walk forward, never being allowed the chance to step back and try a new route ...
My #1 regret is not realizing at an earlier age that in your career selection, you should put passion before money. If I had understood that, I probably would have foregone the six-figure Corporate America salary for so many years and would now be a starving author or fat chef!
Hmmm .... I see a great reality TV series spawning here ... Life Swap! I will give you my mediocre writing career and suffer through your six-figure salary!
Seriously, I have to agree that it's far better to chase your dream than to settle for another. Money pays the bills, but it never buys happiness.
Not getting enough education when I was young. More than that not understanding how to be a better father to my children when they were young. I was there for them but I didn't know enough to do the best for them.
Funny thing Pete, I am now starting to believe the opposite. Education is overrated. College graduates are a dime a dozen, the economy just can't support all of them with the salary they feel they "deserve" for going to college. I like the idea of educating yourself for your own self-fulfillment and that should be a life-long process, but getting a good education to get a "good" job is, unfortunately, a pipe dream.
As for your parenting skills, we all made mistakes with our kids, none of us did our best, but as a person who lost her father at age 4, being "there for them" was a HUGE thing that you can never regret.
I believe my biggest regret in life was truly thinking that I knew something or anything.

Hey fellow writers, I finally did it. I can now say I write on two platforms: HubPages and Medium! I published my first article today. I've been getting the daily articles for about 2 years but never made the time to become a writing member. I'm glad to be in the company of those who encouraged me...
