It only takes one person to change your life: YOU !!

- Ruth Casey

2016_bWhen I assessed year 2015 in my last year’s post, I perhaps for the first time, had a clear vision and plan for how I wanted to approach 2016 and now when I look back at all I did this year, I feel content with the way I worked my way through the last 12 months.

I hailed 2016 as an year of change and I am happy to conclude that I could indeed implement a few plans I had for myself. Though I couldn’t strike off all the items I had on the list for 2016, a reasonable progress was made on areas that needed most attention. 2016 strengthened my belief on my theory of universe and with the year ahead I am looking forward to consolidate and build upon a more robust action plan for my material life and find that extra cushion of security that these changing economic times warrant.

Focussing on the report card of 2016, this is how it looks like:
