“Discipline is choosing between what you want now and what you want most.” – possibly Abraham Lincoln.

The quote above has been attributed to both Abraham Lincoln and Augusta F. Kantra. And while the world may never know who actually said it first, the sentiment matters more than the credit.

In today’s video, my friends Michelle, Andrea, and I set out for an afternoon in Poblado, Medellín Colombia to give you a glimpse of what you can purchase for “only $10”.

But the point of this video wasn’t to say, “Look how inexpensive Colombia is to travel,” because price and value are relative, and you already know that Medellín can be a bargain depending on where you’re coming from and which currency you exchanged upon arrival. (Mind you, we were in hands-down the most expensive part of the city.)

So rather than rehash that old story, I wanted to take this opportunity to remind you to put your time, energy, and money towards the things you want MOST… whatever that may be.
