Working Torwards Your Goals (#77)

When working to achieve anything, it’s important to remember your why. Something an old supervisor used to ask me is, “What’s the why behind my why?” Gratitude allows us to take a step back and remember what the focus really is. Why the opportunity means something regardless of if it goes well or poorly.
