Boring goals will deflate your motivation, like a deflated balloon. The best way to get excited about your goals is to make them very fun, and exciting. This way you will just be super pumped and ecstatic to take a crack at reaching them. As you are looking to create your goals, make sure that you feel that excitement inside of you. When you get that feeling, then you know you have a goal that is worth reaching.
Make your goals EASY
Goals should definitely require you to stretch. However, making your goals easily obtainable can keep you striving for even greater goals. Keep your goals simple, and easy. The route that you take to reach your goal should be clear. When you have simplicity in your goal-making, all there is to do is to start.
Make your goals CELEBRATORY
I’m a big proponent of celebrating milestones. Each and every one of your goals should have so many celebrations along the way. Celebrate every step and every milestone. The reason why is because you are celebrating you moving forward, no matter how small. With each milestone, it can be helpful for you to treat yourself with something that helps encourage you to the next step.
