It doesn’t matter if you are trying to run a marathon, save for a new car or lose ten pounds, a little motivation can make all the difference. If you don’t have a reason or meaning attached to your efforts, it’s easy to end up bumbling blindly along without any focus.
One of the best ways to stay motivated and consistent is to have short term achievable goals. Hitting targets is a great motivator. So, whatever your goal, break it up into smaller pieces and write them down. Make the first one easy to hit and then build on that achievement.
Writing down your goals is critical. It takes them out of your mind and into reality. Share them with your friends for extra motivation and accountability. So often hitting targets is the aggregation of marginal gains. Every small improvement you can make, can make a big difference.
