Twenty years from you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did.

Mark Twain

This quote is special to me because it inspires me to change my mindset and be adventurous. We often come across a lot of opportunities that could be great for us, whether we realize them or not. We all have to learn not to be afraid of taking risks or accepting new ideas. Instead we learn to take advantage of them and better our future.

What are we doing with our time during Covid-19 quarantine?

A lot of us like me mostly be lazy and spend time on social networks, watching Netflix, surfing internet; I am not going to lie that it is the easy way. But time off during quarantine gives us the opportunity to all do things that we love, and learn many new things to become great at! Things for which we didn’t have enough time for.


I encourage you to take advantage of as many opportunities that come your way. I am not saying that you should make room for every single one, but try to tackle as many as you can!

“Twenty years from you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover!”
