A great post I missed at the end of last year, which is the first one of three (with the last coming soon, and a link to the second one here). It's a guest post by Bojan Dordevic on Mike Vardy's site Productivityist.com. It's obviously focused on productivity, but Bojan's words also serve as an inspiration to achieve more and follow your goals:
"The difference between the life you have right now and the life you want to live is the desire to craft your life as your own story. You need to dive deep down and find your purpose. People who are interested in true productivity always stay connected with their goals. They are on top of their lives. They know how to take it in the direction of where they want to go."
