A years ago, I decided to live each year reaching goals, some yearlong accomplishments, others monthly accomplishments (design competitions, Moocs, blogging), small goals for many, huge goals for me. It has being a fantastic ride, lonely most of the time with sudden public appreciation. This 2014 video from Chris Froome crossing the EU tunnel depict visually the adventure.
Find your adventure, go small. The journey is always unbelievable
