How are your new year’s resolutions coming along? If you’re like most people, you’ve probably forgotten what they were.
The critical mistake that we all make, when it comes to goal setting, is failing to ignore the role that motivation plays in sustaining our efforts.
If you don’t see the fruits of your work early on in the process, you’re going to give up really quickly. It’s human nature.
To sustain the long-term effort, you need to reframe what success looks like in the short term so you can get some “quick wins”.
These quick wins will help you push through the motivational dip that you’ll experience when your efforts don’t seem to be paying off, especially when you’re trying something new.
