I believe that learning is a life-long process. After retiring from the Army, I used lessons and skills from those 34 years to support my husband's cross-country bicycle tour. He rode 18,067 miles to all 50 states in one year to support our military, but I had to learn everything about the care and maintenance of our RV. My goal was to do everything possible to ensure his success.

The greater the skill, the easier it will become to accomplish your goals in life. You will find that you can face and/or recover quickly from new challenges and setbacks, using them to your advantage.
