What have you achieved during August? What have you achieved so far during this year? It is always important to review and understand as you go. Review also indicates a need for change so that we do not repeat our earlier faux-pas.

Looking Back

What have you achieved during August? Or even so far during this year? You should always be asking yourself these questions as you walk through your life.

Truth is there will be things you are proud of and others less so. If you did well then you deserve a treat. If things did not go as well then you need to consider what has to change in order to do things better.


If you have done well then you should have a treat; something small to make you feel better.

It will set the tone for your future endeavours. Don't go overboard, reward yourself to the same extent as you have succeeded. Every success should be celebrated. Trouble is most people either overdo or under-do how they treat themselves. It makes no sense going out and spending $200 on dinner just because you finished painting the dining room, but it would be appropriate if you landed a new job.

The Need to Change?

When things did not go quite as well as they should have then it is important to learn the lessons in order that it will help you do better next time around.

It is those lessons in life that help us all move forwards just a little. There is little I can say to guide you as to what changes need to happen; you have to decide that. What I will say is that you have to be honest with yourself about where you change. It has been said that we learn most from our failings.

How we ensure that we do not turn around and make the same mistake again is somewhat like controlling fire. We can start it; but there are times that we need to either turn it up or down. That is akin to assisting our own self-change.

If I spent $200 on a dinner my wife would kill me for sure. But if I donated it to her favorite animal charity she would break down and cry. To each his own.. hmm I had a thought but forgot it..
