One Line to Live By

I'm not endorsing parenthood, but one line on page six of this article struck me as good advice to live by:
About twenty years ago, Tom Gilovich, a psychologist at Cornell, made a striking contribution to the field of psychology, showing that people are far more apt to regret things they haven’t done than things they have.
If I do ever have kids, I'll try to remember to make sure that this is one of the pieces of advice that I drop on them. I know that it's true from personal experience. I've never been windsurfing, and I regret it.
