I completely agree with Juliana.
Sometimes I do some exams for my self to understand how I grew. I create a mini-plan where I write approach, which I will use, and what I need to give from this through the month (or other time). If I see that I have some results, then I continue this approach, and also this motivating me. If I can't see the result then I change my education plan.
For example, my last exam was to speak with some people only in English (it's been ridiculously but I can do this). All of this interesting and motivating me, because I always do something new that I didn't do and try to fix when I fail.
P.S. I'm apologize for the grammar mistake, I'm work on it :)
