One of the wisest men I ever met told me something extremely important earlier this year. He said that every year during the holiday season, he goes away (for him it is hiking in the mountains where he has no cell phone signal) and spends an entire day reflecting on all the things that happened to him that year. He said that he always comes out of that day very thankful for his life because he realizes all his blessings. He also said that he is able to see the difference he makes in this world. I found myself asking the question, "Why doesn't everyone, and particularly pharmacy owners, do this?" I believe the answer to this question revolves around the facts that it is difficult to do and some people don't want to know these things because they are scared of what they might be.
