In the book gods at war, author Kyle Idleman references a study given to a number of senior citizens. In the research study, the individuals were asked the simple question, "If you had life to live all over again, what would you do differently?" The individuals responded in their own words, but the general consensus Idleman shares is that three themes came from the responses:
- I would reflect more
- I would risk more
- I would do more things that would live on after I am dead.
- Work more hours at the office
- Eat more broccoli
- Not go on that adventure
- Stick with my daily routine
