One must think of their career in EMS (and in life) in distance traveled. The goal is to travel as far as possible. Any movement counts as distance traveled, including places you've already been, because some on the most important lessons in life are the ones we learn over and over again. The worst thing you can do in your career (and life), is not gain distance, to stagnate. Every day you must increase yourself in order to gain. Some days you will travel miles, other days inches. Remember, inches added up over time equate to miles, because no lesson learned, no increase in one's self is insignificant.
