Measuring your success is an essential aspect of your personal and professional growth. And you, as social beings, have developed a measuring system based on certain factors. But who told you that your system is accurate?
We measure our success in many ways, depending on our goals and values. We can set specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound (SMART) goals and track our progress towards achieving them.

It makes us consider whether our actions align with them or not. If we follow our values and preferences, we may feel more fulfilled and successful. Seeking feedback from others, including friends, family, mentors, and colleagues, is critical. Other people can offer valuable perspectives on your progress and achievements. And most importantly, we should pay attention to our personal growth and development.

their hands. That they are the ones who will correct the injustices, which
previous generations have set in motion over decades.
But let’s face it, Mauritius is getting old at a faster rate than ever before with no signs of slowing down any time soon. We’ve been watching for some time now how the older generation is increasing while the young generation is not, or at least at a much slower pace. It’s reported that between 1972 and 2015, the percentage of people over the age of 60 has increased from 5.9% to 14.8% (Le Mauricien, 2017).

been hearing how climate change is a global problem that is and will continue
to affect us all. At some point, the experts warn, it’s going to be too late to
reverse the damage that we, as human beings, have spent decades inflicting on
But we’re human and when something is not directly affecting us enough for us to be feeling the pain of the situation, we lean back and say, “It’s sad”. Deep down though, that’s where it ends. It’s sad, but it’s someone else that should take action, that’s what we’re really thinking.
