Reflecting on the Past and Looking Ahead to 2023
Another year has passed, and I must admit that I could not achieve most of the things that I wanted this year. I could blame other people for my failure, and some of those reasons might be valid. But ultimately, I have to take responsibility for my own actions and acknowledge that I have failed.
First, let's talk about what went wrong. I had set my goals for the quarters and given myself tasks, but I didn't end up completing them. The tasks I set for myself were either too ambitious or didn't have enough time allocated to them. This lack of planning and organization led to my failure to achieve my goals.
But I did complete the DataCamp's Data Analyst track. Although I've forgotten most of the material by now, I can always revise it. That's the beauty of online learning!
Okay, let’s talk about what I want for 2023 and how I can increase my chances of succeeding next year.
I have set three goals for 2023 that I believe will help me improve as a person and increase my chances of achieving my long-term goals -
Be mentally and physically healthy. This means eating well, exercising regularly, and getting enough sleep. It also means taking care of my mental health by reducing stress and anxiety, and seeking help when needed. I know that being healthy is essential for me to be able to focus and perform at my best.
Do internships in software engineering, product management, and management consulting. I am interested in these fields because I believe they have a lot of potential and they align with my interests and skills. Doing internships will give me hands-on experience and help me gain the knowledge and skills I need to be successful in these fields.
Get a rating of 2000 on CodeForces - I know this is a very ambitious goal, but I believe that I have the potential to achieve it if I put in the time and effort. I have been practicing coding for a while now, and I know that a high rating on CodeForces will show my proficiency in this area and help me stand out in the job market.
Overall, I am determined to make the most of 2023 and achieve my goals. I know that it won't be easy, but I am willing to work hard and stay focused in order to be successful.© Vivek Shukla.RSS
