Bhagavad Gita starts with Arjuna vishada yoga and ends with moksha-sanyasa yoga. Every human starts his life with crying (after a kid is born first thing he do is crying) and moksha being the ultimate goal where he has to reach.

So Arjuna vishada yoga represents the birth of a human and moksha yoga represents the ultimate goal one should reach. So 18 chapters in Bhagavat Gita represents the 18 steps a human should climb to reach his ultimate goal,moksha.
