For I, my recommendation is: Introspect Today!
It is a habit we ought to inculcate in ourselves. Introspecting every single day even if for five minutes about the things we did, the people we met, the words we said can go a long way in shaping us as human beings.
Often we do not realize the magnitude of a situation when we are in it, but later as we ponder and ruminate over it, we realize what it means. Keeping short and long term goals is a good thing but they will mean nothing, if you do not take the time to introspect them and see how far you have achieved what you had in mind and what means you used to achieve them. Travel is another great form on Introspection, one which everybody should indulge in to experience the sheer bliss of it.
Here are two nice quotes I came across:
