Of all the articles I wrote this week, my favorite is about reevaluating career goals. Doesn’t matter if you’re a writer, store owner, lawyer, or stay at home mom: you need to get off the merry-go-round (rat race?) occasionally and figure out if you’re still going in the right direction!
“It must be borne in mind that the tragedy of life does not lie in not reaching your goal,” said Benjamin E. Mays. “The tragedy of life lies in having no goal to reach.”
Set your big and little goals, my friend…or you’ll reach age 95 and wonder what you did with your life and where the time went. Since you’re gonna be 95 anyway, you might as well challenge yourself in different ways!
