    So it’s the beginning of the year and most people are reevaluating their lives and changing things and trying new things or finally getting to do old things.  And I am so sure that majority are using someone else’s life as a reference point: Nancy lost 30 pounds last year so I should at least lose that much if not more, Mark Zuckerberg was a millionaire at 24 so I should be working towards being halfway there, Kylie Jenner is a CEO and she isn’t even 21 so I should push myself harder, John just graduated with First class honors and he was in the class behind me in high…
