We are the only one to responsible for our dreams and goals and nobody can help us to do it. No matter how little effort we put in for our dream and goal, all these are our stepping stones to success.

These challenges can split by three stages. During the first stage, observe how our daily life goes, how we spend each day by calculating the time spent.
The second stage is improving our utilisation by our observation in the first week. By reducing the wasting time and making our schedule more fulfilling by doing the things that are useful for our goal.
The third stage is improving by our second stage. By observing and improving, we can slowly make our schedule more fulfilling and help to achieve our goal.
The last two challenges are to remind ourselves that there is no ending point for our success.
Our success is not just staying at the target that we made for the previous time. Once we surpass the success point, we must always level up the success to a higher point. This is to prevent ourselves from staying in the comfort zone and help us keep motivated for our goal and work hard toward it.
