November is my birthday month and like every other year, I use it as a time of self reflection and goal setting. This year, instead of being down on myself and getting upset about my lack of progress, I will remember to be kind to myself about my failings and remember all my achievements and successes this past year.
In Adventures in Design: Finding my courage, I talked about the need to “keep on swimming” despite all my failings and be my own cheerleader and most importantly, put myself first. So this year, I will remember that “Dreams Don’t Work Unless You Do”. Like everything in life, you have to put in some effort to reap the reword.
