Set short-term and long-term goals.
If you have a clear idea about your goals in life, it will become much easier to achieve them and lead a fulfilling life. By analyzing your goals and breaking them into smaller steps, the work towards achieving them will become much more practical, rather than abstract. Thus, your goals will be more easily attainable and you will be much happier as a result of your perseverance and diligence. You will never stagnate in your professional life if you continue to aim for the stars.
