Apolo Ohno and Zero Regrets

Filed under: Famous people — admin @ 12:40 am

Zero Regrets: Be Greater Than Yesterday by Apolo Ohno, 2010. Having read it, I told my daughter it was worth reading. But she did not have the time for it. Hence, I told her, “Well, you don’t have to read the whole book, as long as you understand and keep in mind the following quote and by the end of the day, you can say ‘Zero regrets.'”

“Zero regrets. It’s a philosophy not just about sport but about life. School, business, academics, love- anything and everything. It’s complicated and yet not. You have to figure out who it is you want to be. Not what you want to be—who.

“There has to be a vision, a dream, a plan. Then you chase that with everything you’ve got. That means you have to put in the work, the practice, the training. There aren’t any shortcuts. If you want something, you have to be 100 clear in how you plan to get it. You have to be relentless in your pursuit.” p. 2

I know not many of us can say zero regrets when we look back. The best we can do is to try to reduce our level of regrets.
