Contrast the way Mitch behaved on reuniting with Morrie with the way he wishes he had behaved.

As Mitch approached the house, he spots Morrie on the porch. However, he does not get off the phone, instead finishing his conversation before his sixteen-year reunion. This is a conflict for Mitch. Does he finish his job or spend every precious second re-uniting? Both are important to him. Mitch was very much preoccupied with work and success. He greeted Morrie with a sense of otherness. Half his mind was ruminating about deadlines work...and the other half was on greeting Morrie. Mitch wished he had been more genuine and focused on the moment.
