    That's so damn true and a great thing to remember. It's critical to be working towards something, but don't forget the work you do in working towards it! FUCK YEAH is my response to your sentiment.

    very true indeed (the bolded line).

    i find that goals help me keep motivated and in-the-moment. ilke, when i make financial goals, i always write out what i need to do *today* to make that possible. kwim?
