3 things you should know if you are working on a long-term project

Today's society puts a great deal of pressure on us. We have to do a lot of things:

  1. study
  2. work
  3. raise our children
  4. housekeeping
  5. build relationships
  6. etc

Enjoy who you are and what you have !

  5. someone who excels in great deeds
  6. the main character in a novel, a play, etc.
  7. principal, center of attention
