And why is that? What is it that drives some people so hard that they forsake all the better things in life, such as raising a family, making friends and enjoying a hobby or two. I’m certainly content with “leaving my mark” on my chosen profession; making my “dent in the universe”, so to speak. For me, it’s never been about making a pile of money, as I was a career soldier. I thoroughly enjoyed the camaraderie of military service; what I was doing, and why I was doing it. Otherwise I would have chosen a very different path a long time ago.
