  3. Love all your ideas and enthusiasm

  4. When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don't adjust the goals, adjust the action steps. See the link below for more info.


  5. Life is a battle, if you don't know how to defend yourself then you'll end up being a loser. So, better take any challenges as your stepping stone to become a better person. Have fun, explore and make a lot of memories.
