  • (Write your biggest regret. )

  • This chalkboard stood in the middle of New York city for one full day.

  • I was afraid, afraid of, I guess, failing, maybe?

  • I regret all the time I wasted, not saying yes to things.

  • It's something I've always wanted to do since I was little.

  • Time is slipping away, I mean, that's probably the worst feeling in the world, right?

  • (Not getting my MBA. )

  • (Never going after my dreams. )

  • I've got loads of friends from different walks of life and it's really hard to keep in touch with everyone.

  • Up until recently, I was homeless.

  • If I hadn't hurt the people that I had.

  • Maybe I wouldn't have been.

  • And I wanted to do so many things, but I can never seem to find the time.

  • I did all the things that were like, plan B.

  • I just never did it.

  • (Never applying to Med school. )

  • Thank you, haha. That's good? Alright yo, enjoy.

  • Staying in my comfort zone.

  • As the board filled up with so many different stories...

  • We noticed almost all of these regrets had something in common.

  • (Not pursuing acting. )

  • (Not getting involved. )

  • (Not having kids before my dad passed away. )

  • (Not being a better friend. )

  • They were about chances not taken.

  • They were about words not spoken.

  • They were about dreams never pursued.

  • But then we gave them an eraser.

  • A clean board feels, feels like where I want to be.

  • Feels like where I wanna go.

  • That it's not my regret anymore.

  • It's hopeful.

  • It means, there's possibility.

  • Every day is a clean slate. Do the things you'll regret not doing.

  • Clean slate.
