“If I had only…”, “I could have and should have…”, Sentence starters to eliminate from your vocabulary.
If the plan doesn’t work, change your plan not your goal. (If you’ve been reading So How’s That Working For You? for very long, you’ll recognize this one as a “NALP” tenant.)

But, it’s up to you.
