The most important step in achieving anything in life is to start doing/trying it. And usually that first step of taking on a new challenge is the hardest. This might sound a bit of cliché but it actually happens so often that weeks, months or even years pass thinking of something that you would like to do but haven’t started yet.
I think the end of the year is a great opportunity to reflect upon previous accomplishments and failures, celebrate the former and learn from the latter and most importantly recharge and set new specific goals for the year ahead. Defining new goals and committing yourself on pursuing them is the simplest yet critical process in self-development. I hope that, if not done yet, you will set a great new challenge for the year to come.
