My aim in life

An article I had read recently got me thinking about my goals in life. I spent some time thinking and I came up with a bunch - categorized them as being about career, love, travel, sports etc. I printed them out and posted them up at my work station to constantly remind me of the bigger picture. I realized, they all boil down to one primary goal: Constant Improvement.
Improvement is what I am seeking. I want to improve myself in a meaningful way every single day. It is my purpose in life. The way I see it, I have a pretty good starting point and if I make myself better every day, I will continue to be proud of myself for as long as I live. 

This is quite a break through for me. It is not to say I havent improved myself in some way or another every day all this time. The difference is that from now on, it will be planned, tracked and evaluated. I am thoroughly committed to this goal and I hope this governs me for the rest of my life. The best part is that there will always be scope for improvement. 

To a better me and a brighter future ....
