The best thing about achieving an ambitious goal is what it makes of you in the process. We also know It's important to keep moving the "goal post" or you would have no reason to continue. We've all heard the saying "the journey is the destination". It turns out that's true for choosing a new gun, car, camera and even vacations! The research, planning, work and anticipation are an important part of the final event whether it be making a purchase, achieving a goal or taking a vacation. Based on scientific fact; I recommend we all start planning a great vacation (even a short one) and add a little more goodness to our lives!
