One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” – Henry Miller
We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us. It magnifies all human emotions. Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before! Stuff your eyes with wonder! You don’t have to be rich to travel well.Travel is the thing you buy that makes you richer. A new vigor to the mind.

Google spent a lot of time and money to figure out what we learned years ago: There are life skills having to do with relating to other people and ourselves that are of primary importance to having a fulfilling life. "Google now describes psychological safety as the most important factor to building a successful team.
In short, just be nice."
