When Caroline Harper suddenly found herself jobless in her mid-40s, she decided to step off the corporate ladder and travel to all the places she’d always wanted to go, from Antarctica to Egypt. Here’s how it changed her life — and her career. Caroline Harper loved her work negotiating big contracts in the oil and…
I read this article and definitely agree with it. Maybe if you can’t take a gap year you could at least do something different on your next vacation which would allow you to think about what you would want to do in the future.

One thing I am trying this year is to fill out a planner again. I have tried to use a bought planner in previous years and have failed. Then I tried a Bullet Journal for a while, but gave up since I was constantly having to rewrite tasks from week to week since they were not getting done.
So, this year I created a three month planner (to start) of my own design. It is a combination of a regular planner and a Bullet Journal. I will let you know at the end of March what worked and what I will be changing for the next three months.
