Take stock

It’s very easy to get engrained in the daily routine and never step back to consider where you are heading. There’s a comfort in routines that means you never have to ask some uncomfortable questions about where you are and whether you are where you want to be in life.

Suddenly you wake up and realise that you are in your thirties and a long way away from the dreams you had when you were young and full of ambition.

You wonder to yourself – why didn’t you go for your dreams? And what’s stopping you now?

Taking that step back to take stock and reflect is worthwhile. Some only do it when the new year creeps up, others when a significant event happens in their life, like the death of a loved one.

Now is a better time than any to take that opportunity.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
