An article in the New York Times on Sunday referenced the movie, “Peggy Sue Got Married.” I loved that movie and have not probably not seen it since it was released in 1986. In the film, Peggy Sue (played by Kathleen Turner) is magically sent back in time from her twenty-fifth high school reunion to high school. The twist in the film is that she is sent back to high school with all of the knowledge as to what would happen to her in the following twenty-five years.



While back in time, Peggy Sue is able to appreciate the things that she took for granted the first time around. More importantly, however, she is given the opportunity to try to change the choices she made the first time with the knowledge as to the results of her initial choices. In trying to make  new choices she attempts to make decisions that she believes would better her life in the current time period.



The year of the film's release-1986- was a pivotal year in my life. I graduated law school in May and, in September, began employment at my first professional job. I was so young but thought I knew it all. Of course, with 20-20 hindsight, I realize I knew very little in 1986. So, in thinking about this movie, I have to wonder what sort of advice would I now give my younger self just starting out in the professional world.



If you could go back, what advice would you give your younger self?

    The things I'd want to change remain outside my control, and if I changed them, very likely I'd not have met my wife and fathered and help raise my kids. Thus cannot see a back to the future type change I'd welcome.

    I would have taken school far more seriously

    I would have recognized the infinite opportunities that surrounded me, both personally and professionally. However, as Corey said, I wouldn't change a thing.
