Once you set your goals and exactly what you want, half of the job is already done. Don’t waste time on what if/what would you do. Simply do what interests you at the moment and try to clarify it as soon as possible. After you are 100% sure what you want, go for it! The important thing is to do not set goals that you have more cons than pros. If you have many things that are not in your favor maybe it’s not the right time to put it in action. Focus on what you have in your hands and on what you are able to manage.


 2. Get informed
