Episode 190: “Regret On The Farm" w/Tom Field

In today’s episode, Tracy speaks with Tom Field about “Regret On The Farm."

As farmers, we make critical decisions based on outcomes that are often out of our control. We do our best to make the correct decision with the information at hand; however, it’s impossible to be right all time, given the fickle nature of weather, input pricing, markets, etc.

This often leads to regret and beating ourselves up for being wrong and making mistakes. This stress can affect our mindset, happiness, and confidence in our abilities.

In this conversation, Tracy and Tom have an up close and personal conversation about regrets on the farm and chat about the following:

  • What we can learn from regret.
  • What are the kinds of regrets, and why should we examine them in our lives?
  • We often hear much about “no regrets” - is that even rational?
  • How does regret motivate us?
  • How does regret diminish us?
  • How can farmers, farm families, and farming operations grow from acknowledging regret?

Please do not miss this conversation. If you have ever done something you regret or made a decision that didn’t turn out as desired (everyone on planet earth)…. this conversation will likely take 100lbs off of your shoulders. And who doesn’t want that?
