As a 27-year-old, I don’t pretend to be an expert at life. However, I think there is a lesson here. I believe there are many areas of life where should consider taking the scenic route. In my experience, taking the scenic route has almost always resulted in a much higher reward. In my dad’s case, taking the scenic route to Pittsburgh leaves him with a few extra dollars to buy himself a cup of coffee at Starbucks or whatever. That’s his reward! Remember, rewards can be big or small.
