SO many people want to get away from it all right now. After being stuck inside and worrying what the world is going to look like when it returns to normal, not to mention the increased awareness of the fragility of life. Why not consider what it would be like to start off on a new track – any new track, I’m not recommending any particular one, just something that you actually want to do, or something that you hate less, or something that is less stressful, has a better work-life balance, is easier on your body or mind, pays better or just maybe makes you feel better all-around overall?

Imagine carefully planning and executing that sort of thing, instead!
