How Do You Reward Yourself?

In this society we are overly encouraged to ‘buy’ ourselves treats as rewards for success. I believe however that reward comes in many forms……Yesterday was a huge professional turning point for me, and today I feel depleted. I know that it took a huge push to achieve my goal yesterday.

An Age Old Decider

So you have a decision to make? Be it professional or personal, it has been giving you sleepless nights. You have been playing ping-pong in your head.
