So Many Reasons To Love Great Places

Patty Ceglio

It’s great to have you here with us. That’s Bryce Canyon in the photo above. One really Great Place. Having you as a companion along for the ride makes us happy doing what we do.

J.R.R. Tolkien noted, “The Biggest Adventure Is What Lies Ahead …”

There are so many reasons to love Jobs in Great Places®. From A-Z, choose one or more of these as inspiration for What Lies Ahead – your next Big Adventure – or, as inspiration to create your very own A-Z list.

A – Alaska. Duh. Or. After work hours – make the most of them!
B – Bonus Points for Being Brave and taking the first step
C – Colorado (the 2nd most popular state on
D – Dreaming with your eyes wide open
E – Exploring your new big backyard
F – Finding yourself
G – Geocaching – it’s a thing, really!
H – Hiking – it will do your Heart good, in so many ways!
I – Investment in what matters most – you and the world
J – Journal along the Journey
K – Kicking up your heels – or better yet, kicking off your heels!
L – Learning new things from new people in new places
M – Mountains and more mountains, oh my! (And Maps.)
N – National Parks – the first love of Looking for your own Why?
O – Outside. Get there. Stay there. Love it there.
P – Possibilities. Potential. Perspective. 
Q – Quandary – “a difficult situation; a practical dilemma”, as in, “I’m in a quandary over which Great Place to choose!”
R – Reach for the stars – because you’ll actually be able to see them at night!
S – States – get some new ones knocked off your bucket list. Or, Shenanigans. Because there will be lots of them. (And because it’s one of my favorite words.)
T – Terrifying Options – “You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
U – Unique additions to your resume and/or your Instagram Feed
V – Volunteer – it’s another way to do good things in Great Places
W – Whitewater Rafting – because you just have to
X – Xenagogue – you can earn a living being one, or you can show others things just to call yourself by this X(wo)man name
Y – Yellowstone. Yosemite. Yogi Bear. You.
Z –  Zion. Ziplining. And your Zest For Life.

There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something,
if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after.
