Learn to find a balance between drive and caution. Hone your ability to assess the risks involved in opportunities that come your way, and then ask yourself how much you want the reward. No pleasure comes without some risk, but not every reward is worth it. Save your time and energy for what matters most to you. Set a reasonable and achievable goal to focus on. From a personal development standpoint, you may want to set a short-term goal achievable in a few years and a long-term goal for the direction you want your life to go in over time. Whether your goals are professional or personal, having a clearly defined result helps you set a development plan.

Continue to look for ways to learn new things and improve yourself, and you are sure to reap the rewards.
