I’ve had the goal of leaving my job to do this whole freelance thing since 2010. 7 years of working towards this “endpoint,” I’ve had to learn to love what I was doing to get here. The funny thing is that now that I’ve accomplished the goal, I’m already ready to reach even higher. The feeling of hitting the goal lasted moments, where as the process to get there took years. You have to enjoy the journey you are on. I think this is true no matter what type of goal you have. .
