|I think I do certain things because I'd regret not doing them more than I regret actually doing them.
The perfect example is grad school. I can't put into words how much I hate school and learning. I can't wait until I can sit around and bask in my stupidity, without even a thought as to when the next assignment is due or how I'll find time to do it. But at the same time, I know that if I didn't get my graduate degree (which is provided freely and conveniently by my employer), I'd regret it even more.
Getting graduate degree: Regret level = 6/10
Not getting graduate degree: Regret level = 8/10
8 > 6 → get graduate degree
When things are broken down into numbers, they make much more sense to me. #psychology
