If someone ask me what are my regrets on my deathbed, it will be regretting I let him/her ask me this question. I want to die happy without thinking of regrets or what I wished I had done. And if there should be any questions, it would be, "what wishes do you want fulfilled before you die?" That was the question my family asked my dad (he died a few months after we posed the question to him). He did not have any grandeur request (adding that he indeed lived a happy life) but just asked us to contact all his siblings (9 who are still alive) so that they can either visit or call him before he died. If they hadn't, I guess that would have been his regret.

I hope that when my time comes my biggest regret will be not quitting my job sooner....

Budgeting is a skill practised by people who are bad at politics.
