    A large regret is an exam we have failed.
    A small regret is a pop quiz we didn't do well on.

    Quickly review them to see what areas need work and then burn them. Don't carry them around and show them to everyone as evidence of your inadequacy. Don't wallow in your mistakes.They become a crutch that hides your brilliance not only from others but, more importantly, from yourself.

    We don't have time for that shit.

    We are still in school.

    We have work to do.

    New mistake?
    Review. Toss. Move on.
