Can there be a timeline on self-improvement? Can there be a goal set for self-improvement?
In the shortest answer, I don’t think so.
Hear me out!
When you walk the path of improving yourself, firstly its the realization that comes too late, and then understanding the issues at hand and then improving at them.
Of course, it’s easy to write this than execute because the process is a long one.
However, once you start walking on this path of self-improvement, you might wonder how much time you should give to it and if there’s a specific goal that you should attach to the process, which once achieved, means you have achieved the process of self-improvement.
Well, not to burst the bubble, but it is one.
The journey of self-improvement is long, lifetime long. There is no specific target to achieve and there cannot be any time limit to it.
The more you improve, the more you change and the more you grow. The more you grow, the more you want to improve and the more you want to learn.
The process is a cyclical one and ultimately, the vision becomes to become better than yesterday, to become a better version of yourself.
You improve at one thing, then you want to pick up another aspect of your life to improve at, you work on it, but there are levels attached to it, so basically you’re levelling up time after time.
This is not meant to scare you at all, no that’s not the case. The intention is to make you aware of this so you don’t have the wrong expectations of the process.
It takes efforts, it takes time, and yet its the best thing that you could do with your life.
