  1. I’ve found this to be very helpful since you encouraged me to do it a few years ago. I lose sight of that list sometimes and have to recreate it but it’s been a very helpful tool in the toolbox as I’ve refocused my life.


    1. Hi MeriChris. Thanks for the feedback. I encourage you to create a living list. The things you prioritize and strive to achieve may change depending on where you are at life. I wish you the best in your journey. Godspeed.
