This article is not directly related to web development but somehow I think it’s necessary for me to put it here for our learning process. An interesting thought that crossed my mind this month was:
The first thing we need, in order to write a good story is if we knew exactly what will be the end of the story
so actually to start, we need to know what will be the end, to write the goal, then come back to the first page to draw the plan.

Positivity toward your dream will eventually resonate with the surrounding, attracting the best possible people, best circumstances, and creating the best opportunity to make your dreams come true.
