Life is like a house, each day there is a new guest, which demand attention and hospitality (your life issues/ordeals). In order for your home not to be destroyed, manage your guests by nightly evaluations which including problem solving techniques. Next, put them in motion. Look, if you don't evaluate yourself, your life, your character, YOU period, how will you ever know if you're having progress. Sit down, check on you, write a list of things you notice in you that you can work on, write the ordeals that happen that day and possible ways to come about them.
..you'll need it, cause trust me, you'll get about 2-3 guests a day.
