What’s the secret to your success?

Have fun every day enjoying your work! I use Jeff Bezos’s “regret minimization framework.” A regret minimization framework is a business heuristic that enables you to make a decision by projecting yourself in the future and visualize whether the regrets of missing an opportunity would hunt you down compared to having taken the opportunity and failed.
