3. A Deadline
Deadlines force you to think about what it will take to accomplish your goal. Each step will require a certain amount of time and a deadline will help you prioritize what you’ll work on (and for how long).
What is accountability? Accountability is accepting responsibility for your actions and being willing to be answerable to the outcomes of our choices, decisions, and actions. Fully committing brings out internal capabilities and helps us develop a sense of control for the results. Stop blaming, complaining, waiting, and hoping. Make it happen!
5. A Reward
A reward will give you the motivation to keep pushing through to finish your project. Choose rewards that are in your control: a party, a fancy dinner, a car, etc. Sometimes it’s easy to lose track of why we do the things we do, so put a reminder of your reward in your bedroom or office.
