"You don't describe yourself as a spoilt child, but you purely do have the earmarks of one.  Coast through school, and now are having a life crisis at age 19? The really old school advise would be to metaphorically give yourself a swift…"

"You could try being a bit more specific in writing down what you did or did not do during the day to accomplish your goal. For example, say you want to learn an instrument, and you set a goal to practice for 20 minutes a day. For me, being able to…"
