Each year, thousands of people skip out on vacations because they don’t have an organized system for it.
It’s such a stressful process for them that they would rather not do it at all. Some people go to the same place year after year after year because they have that one system down pat. Any other trip would seem highly stressful and the unknowns would not even let them take the first step toward achieving their travel goals and plans.
I have come to find that for a lot of folks, the stress of doing something they have not done before is too great to even try it. This was definitely the case with me; I used to be so afraid of the process of traveling, especially with kids. Once I learned to overcome the fear by being super organized with the process, we started exploring destinations! It’s been an amazing experience. I often say that when I look back at the last 17 years of marriage, the days and times that stand out in my mind are the ones when we were on a trip or getaway somewhere.
We are afraid of the unknown – and going somewhere outside of your comfort zone – your home, can be scary.
Having an organized system for traveling can truly make a difference in how a trip or getaway is planned. Here are 12 steps to guide and support the process of planning an unforgettable trip or getaway, whether travel is alone, with a partner, or with a family.

The problem is graduation celebrations can be expensive and stressful to plan. We want to buy amazing gifts for the graduate, and we want to plan big, elaborate celebrations.
