This year was special for me but, still the most blessing thing that happened to me this year is that My family and I survived through this crazy pandemic Alhamdulillah. I started the year with the will to focus on becoming a better man not only to have progress with my career as I usually plan, but also to improve my personal life and to be happier, healthier and more productive, so I did the following:
I stared reading more often than I have ever done before and this was really special because some of the books I read books really changed the way I was living before in one way or another. I was planning to read 10 books in 2020, but I have read 17 so far.
After all I’ve managed to build, track and maintain healthy habits and routines during this year, and that’s really a life changing win.
This year was also very special for me emotionally as I have become a father for our youngest family member Nour, witnessing the moment she was born was very special for me. Becoming a parent or knowing I will become a parent really changed my perspective for life and what matters and what is doesn’t.
I am really grateful for everything that happened to me this year whether it was good or bad, and most importantly I am grateful for the man who gave me this advice when I asked him for career advice:
This advice really helped me to change my directions and to think in another way that I haven’t thought before.
In 2021, I want to do the following
That’s it, Let’s hope for beautiful calm 2021.
