After finishing this course, I learned that small, achievable actions would help me exceed my goals more quickly, and I was able to create an action plan to reach my goals.
This course is very suitable for those who have no plan for life, or lost, it is really a good educational course.
The course actually enlisted experts from the University of Michigan to join us in exploring decades of scientific research on how the most successful people do things differently. It was very rewarding.
I've always been a bit confused, but it's great to take this course, which gives readers a plan of action to help us achieve professional success and a happier life. Very good.
