No Regrets?

Steven Pressfield never fails to offer up something worth reading. I especially love this quote from his blog:

“You’ve read the same articles I have in the Sunday supplements that say on your deathbed you never regret the days you didn’t go in to the office. Bullshit. That’s not my world. I do regret those days. Norman Mailer toward the end of his life was asked if he had any regrets. The interviewer expected, I imagine, an answer like, “I wish I’d spent more time with my kids.” Instead Mailer said, “I have three or four more books in my head; I wish I had written them.””

This is indeed my particular fear–not getting written what I want to write. The challenge, of course, is making each day a no regrets day.
