Adjust As Necessary

Life isn’t a straight line goal.  No matter how committed we are, no matter how much we strive, the nature of life is more Fibonacci than number line, more Hokey Pokey than line dancing. 🙂  Which means that no matter how well you’re doing or how far you’ve gotten, periodically you’ve got to pause, take…
