Describe a goal that you achieved, which was set by yourself
- What it was
- When did you set it
- How did you achieve it
- Explain how it influenced your life
Well, I think it is quite important to set goals and achieve them in order to succeed in life. Sometimes, we set unrealistic targets and we get demotivated when we see that it is not possible to achieve them.
I remember that a couple of months ago I set a target to learn web server management. I knew that it was quite hard to learn commands. Web server is actually a kind of networking, on which source code of a website resides and people are able to browse a website on entering URL in a web browser.
I always had a keen interest in how a website runs and work involved to host websites. Last year, I thought about it and I made a promise to myself that I had to learn how to host a website.
To learn about hosting basics, I purchased an online course from Udemy. Udemy is a website where people can purchase different types of courses. I purchased a course named “basics of web hosting” and this course was about 50 hours long and this course includes practical sessions and the tutor encourages everyone to participate by giving tests. I did a lot of practice after office timing. I extensively used Google search to solve the issues that I had faced during learning and I read numerous articles related to hosting a website.
After successfully completing this course, I talked with my employer about the new skill I learned and I received a hike in salary. All in all, it really helped me to move forward in my professional career.
