Changing Targets : Reasonable Goals — 83 Unsung Heroes

In some instances, we might not know how things will turn out, but the ground work is there. We can see the first step to our target and it’s obvious and apparent and unquestionable.

Hi, if we were having a coffee this week I think I’d still get a hot one
