So back in September I decided I was going to work to get my extra ham radio license by Jan 1, 2016. I was motivated by the fact that I had been a technician class operator for nearly 6 years and never completed the journey. I wanted my extra class license and I wanted it before January so I set out to accomplish that goal. The satisfaction of setting a goal and accomplishing it (one that requires effort) is so incredibly fulfilling! I'm hopeful I can teach this sense of drive to accomplish your goals to my children, that would be one of my life's greatest accomplishments.
