John Goddard once stated, “It’s helpful to look at your life and ask: ‘If I had one more year to live, what would I do?’ We all have things we want to achieve. Don’t put them off—do them now!” Goddard was a man of many goals, a man that people should envy and look up too, and a man that wasn’t afraid to be great and do great things.
