I shoulda fished for the bigger fishies

If I were to have the opportunity to start my adult life over again, I would do one general, albeit very important, thing differently: go faster. Much faster. Taken action earlier, made the decision quicker, pondered less, acted more. Gone after the bigger fish right off the bat, instead of piddling around so long with […]
