Do you think you have achieved enough in life?

Or do you think you have a long way to go to achieve? Do you fix new targets after you achieve one?

Hello there again my friend. Nobody will stand and say " i already achieved what i want in this life " Not even successful people could ever say that,we maybe successful in all aspects in our own standards with what is success.But deep inside we had lots and lots of simple things we never really achieved for.Actually,we strive hard for bigger achievement and overlooked simple things we want.And then in later part of our life we will be regretting not to ever experience it. Just think of this " men were always be boys" why?...becoz,when boys reach the age of pre-teens they wanted to act like an adult and forget their childhood.So the tendency is,when they get older they missed out the feelings of being a kid,the toys,the innocence. We tend to achieve bigger things and missed out the joys of simple things,ask our grandparents about this,this is one reason why grandparents loves to play with their grandkids becoz they missed a lot of things when they were young. Enough is not aplicable when we say LIFE...becoz each day and each moment counts.Every single steps we move closer or even farther to our goals. Let's enjoy life

I always fix targets, whether its to pay off a bill or a credit card or to complete something or read a book by a certain time etc. I really hope that at 23 I have not achieved everything I can, especially since I am doing a course next year, but I have achieved a lot and experience and personal achievements are things I will look to now rather than academia as I feel thats the right direction... I am thinking about one of the following, a novel, a website offering free business start up advice or running a marathon... Anyone doing any of these?

No I dont think I have achieved a lot in my life time. Theres so many things I still want to achieve which is why I dont want to die now. I would like to have a family which is my biggest goal and hopefully I will be able to achive that one day which dosnt seem likely now.

Hi vijayanths, There are still things that I want to accomplish,it may not be major but it is important to me. I feel that as long as we are here there will be something for us to do. Blessings.
