What’s your biggest regret?
I've been doing a lot of self-reflection lately and with that have been thinking about all the stupid decisions I've made. From going to class maybe 7 times my senior year of college and tanking my GPA to losing $100k on a single trade, I've had my fair share of full-retard moments. I wish I did an internship in college so I wouldn't graduate and have my only offer be absolute shit. I wish I stayed in shape rather than listening to my fat parents tell me I'm too skinny and it's ok to eat an entire pizza 5 days a week. I wish I focused more on making real friendships in college rather than how many thotties I could smash from my apartments GroupMe. I wish I did all of those, but I did learn from that and they're part of who I am today so it's not all bad. However, if I had to choose one single event, I'd probably choose that trade as that's a shit-ton of money no matter who you are. I'm still chugging along, but that $100k returned at 20% annually over the next 20 years is $3.8M. Sure, that's an aggressive return, but it's not impossible. I plan on having enough money anyways so I won't miss that amount too much, but as previously stated it's still a fuck ton of money (yeah taxes would hit but that's still almost $3M post-tax). I'm sure many of you will think of commenting how not grinding hard enough to get that prestigious investment banking internship junior year or not getting into Harvard is your biggest regret. If you're who I'm talking about, please take some time to look at your perspective on life. Sure, those would be nice, but if that's your biggest regret then you've lived a pretty solid life so far.
