Make Your Goals Achievable!

The new year is just a couple of hours away and we’ve set our eyes on the coming year to be better than the one we had this year… Right? At least, we all think and try to get there. I wasn’t a big fan of yearly goal setting rather I would think that I should make 5-year plans and try to “focus” on them. Has it worked for me? Totally!

She is intimidated by extroverts. Being an introvert herself, she feels that her “type” is better than the other and should be preferred.
