These things would be counted as major expenditures to pay for which you’ll have to dip into your savings no matter what.

Many say that setting goals is the first step to a successful career. It’s also one of the most important steps in setting out to achieve your dream job.

Nothing works as well as self motivation does and putting down goals for yourself is just the way to do it. You should be able to clearly envision exactly what you want from your life. It’s okay to be confused sometimes, but if the big picture gets muddled up you’ll lose the will to fight for your career and end up losing hold of it. Without having set goals, all the things you’re doing are just random activities … [Read More...]
