Though there is no specific or particular due date for goal attainment, we must not treat goal attainment half-heartedly. Give it full-time attention, effort, and energy and the rewards will come to you more than you expect. There may be instances wherein delays are unavoidable. Be sure to give it a think over and exhaust all possibilities to minimize each delay. If still, delays are unavoidable, then we must patiently give way to it but under no circumstances must procrastination take its place in your pursuit.
Like any other endeavor, it is human nature that delays do happen. Nobodys perfect. Every time it does, we must pick up a lesson or two from each experience. As the saying goes: charge it to experience.
Talking of experience, it reminds me of the importance of history lessons. There is an adage: "Learn from the mistakes of others; you cant live long enough to make them all yourself. This is one of the reasons why we have history subjects in school.
You may wonder how history is related to goal realization. I also used to wonder why we have to study history lessons, what good it will do to the present and future generations. I used to think that we cant turn back the hands of time to correct mistakes and studying history is a waste of time and energy.
