How many points do you have? Maldives has pretty spots but seaplane transportation alone can be a bummer

You can get an overwater villa with that in the Maldives. Or try Morocco below as someone recommended if you want more than nice beaches 🤣

Not sure what you mean by sweet spots? Do you want a really expensive room for minimal points? SE Asia is not going to be a “sweet spot” if that’s the case. Europe and major US cities would be your best bet.

I thought Bora Bora would be best for Bang on Marriott points? st Regis bora bora

someone save this attorneys job. I hired an attorney with 5 years experience. I send her assignments and usually the law we're using. She never reads the breifs or memos we've prepared.

Just because it's hard you give up? WTF.

I have this constant feeling of doing something better then what I am doing now. Bigger role, better pay, more growth, higher impact .... is what my brain is consumed with all the time. It’s not new, I have been feeling like this for as long as I remember ... even when I was in school. Although it has served me well so far career wise, but sometimes I feel that I missing out on my present life... does anyone feel like this too? I am not sure if this normal. I am in mid-40s, in case that matters.
