Take Time to Reflect ... the Best is Yet to Come!

Read More
 
I am often accused of not taking time to reflect on accomplishments. Instead, I just move briskly from one goal to the next. Yet, there is one time when I break this habit – as the year comes to an end. It’s one time when I am reminded to slow down and reflect on the triumphs and challenges of the prior year. So I am easing up on the gas and giving myself the time and space to reflect on all that happened in home care in 2014. I hope you will do the same.
