Every now and then there are those days when we have too much time on our hands. We do chores around the house, visit the bank, relatives, go for a jog, take out the trash and then we run out of things to do.

5 Powerful Goal Setting Tools to Spark Your Achievements

The other day I was having a talk with a friend of mine, during which he told me about a problem that he has struggled with for a long time. I listened carefully, and then shared some of the goal setting strategies that I have been implementing for the past couple of years. I explained that goal setting has been a total game changer for me. Whenever I set a new goal, I always give it a date by which it should be achieved, at least partially.

Making the Decision to Start an Online Business This New Year – Part 1

As a new year’s resolution, I made a solid decision to start an online business in the year 2017. Why? Because I can.

I am one of those people that cannot sit still for too long. I know that comfort and peace are what we ultimately look for, but so far I have had no luck in finding those, nor I really want to. I know myself and I know that in order to be satisfied, I need to keep on moving forward. If I don’t move on, I get extremely bored, and I know that many of you can relate to me here. Some begin to take drugs, some drink alcohol, and some play video games. In the long run, it really doesn’t matter what you choose – they are all different ways of running away from life. I, in this case, know that starting an online business will keep me excited and occupied for many years to come, regardless of whether I will experience success or failure.
