As we grow older, we are often bogged down by a common notion that life is to be viewed as a pair of staircases, where you walk one step at a time and reach a particular point in life. Though this does help in bringing a sense of being organized and disciplined in setting your goals right, what this lacks is answering the question,” How do you do know when to stop?”.
