When we’re not on vacation, it’s often easy to think of things that we would rather be doing. Especially if that thinking goes on between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on any day of the week that is not Saturday or Sunday. But dreaming is good. It provides motivation and inspiration, sparking that great internal desire to venture out into the world and try new things.
