Accomplishment

“People who do not practice and learn new skills never gain a proper sense of proportion or self-criticism.  They think they can achieve anything without effort and have little contact with reality.  Trying something over and over again grounds you in reality, making you deeply aware of your inadequacies and of what you can accomplish with more work and effort.” ~ Robert Greene, Mastery

“Christians believe that pride is a sin because it is a lie – it convinces people that they are better than they are, that they are better than God made them.  Pride leads to arrogance and then away from humility and connection with their fellow man.  You don’t have to be Christian to see the wisdom in this.  You need only to care about your career to understand that pride – even in real accomplishments – is a distraction and a deluder.” ~ Ryan Holiday, Ego is the Enemy

…That’s when I knew I had to take a deeper look because otherwise 2016 would be nothing more than a repeat.
