Gretchen has her own “12 Commandments” listed in her book and on her blog. Commandment 6 is “Enjoy the Process”. Wow~! What simple advice. The search, the hunt, the research, the planning….. these components play a part in many events. Then there might be shopping & rearranging life as another phase of the process. Let each part bring some element of adventure and enjoyment.
