There's a saying: 'You won't know how far you can go, until you've gone too far.'
For a runner it might mean setting a goal to complete a marathon. For a mountain climber -- reaching the summit of Mount Everest.
It doesn't have to pertain to distance or height. It could mean pushing yourself to achieve more in your career -- doing things that require you to take on more responsibility, gain more skills, ... etc.
Seeing 'how far you can go' can mean a lot of things to a lot of different people.
For me it meant accepting an assignment yesterday to do a closing in Trinidad, Colorado. The closing location was more than 140 miles from Colorado Springs -- the farthest I have ever driven to do a closing.
When I first started as a notary signing agent, if a company had asked me if I could do a closing that far away, I might have told them to try to find someone else who is closer. But a lot of times there isn't a notary signing agent who is closer.
It was a good experience, and it taught me a lot of things. It forced me to get a little farther out of my comfort zone. In the future, if a company asks me if I can do a closing that is more than 100 miles away, I can answer affirmatively. And I actually look forward to doing more closings in southern Colorado.
There was something else that I gained from that closing assignment. Trinidad is about as far south as you can go in Colorado. In fact, I was only 6 miles from the border.
So after the closing I took a short trip into New Mexico.
