One benefit has been some brief time to review where I am and where I am going. This post I came across called Life Goals helps you if you are the sort of person who plans to get stuff done with the time you've got. I have been mulling on the Yongi Cho quote that says "God doesn't answer vague prayers".
My current Life Vision written while I was on this only has five things on it so I am feeling a slightly under-goaled.
Maybe I will come up with a few more:)
