My weekly message is going out a little earlier than usual as I’ll be driving to New York State tomorrow to run the Wineglass Tour marathon on Sunday morning. Am I crazy? Perhaps, but also happy. Why? Because I’ve been training for this race for months now, and am almost there. It’s a psychological fact that working towards something meaningful gives people a greater sense of happiness than having immediate gratification. Goal setting and achieving takes effort (Remember the dirt under the fingernails?) but is absolutely soul-satisfying.
