This is too cool that this is one of the first memories that @evan_shortreed has of me from nearly a decade ago.
When I say things they typically come true. I say what's on my mind and what's on my mind is usually am obsession. Being obsessed usually will push you to results.
And that is what has happened. I fear regret more than almost anything else. I never want to be 104 looking back and say "I wish I did...." I need to take my at bats now so that never happens.
