A Chance To Address Regrets For The Road Not Traveled
Many Americans regret the risks not taken in life, according to Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America, but they may have time to make up for it.
As the average American lives longer — up to 30 years longer than 100 years ago — nearly a third of Americans wish they had done something different with the time they have already spent on earth, according to the Allianz survey, The Gift of Time, released Monday.
Among the major bad decisions cited by respondents were when or where they went to school, the profession they chose, or when or where they worked. Also among the top regrets were not following their dreams, not taking risks with their careers, not taking risks with their lives in general, and not being gutsy enough in making choices. The survey polled 3,000 Americans.
