“In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” -Abraham Lincoln
Many of us are becoming overly consumed by today’s societal pressure to work more hours and earn more money. Not surprisingly, that all comes at a high expense…primarily valuable time with our family and friends. I encourage you to take a step back for a moment and imagine yourself 10 years from now, 20 years from now, 50 years from now. When you reach those milestone, will you have regrets about the extra hours that you clocked at the office or your children’s soccer games you missed? When you are reminiscing about life, what do you think will matter most – the award you won for surpassing the sales quota at work or the memories you made on that beach vacation to Puerto Vallarta with the family?
Vacations are such an amazing way to build those memories with your friends and loved ones. Take that vacation with your spouse and enjoy the new experiences you will enjoy together. Give your kids the real world experiences in countries they have read about in books. These memories will add life to your years and I can guarantee you one thing and that is the vacations you decide to take will be experiences you will not regret in the end.
