Reward yourself after certain milestones are reached.

Finding small rewards every few weeks is a good way to keep motivated because there will be plenty of long stretches without anything to celebrate. You don’t need to go big or expensive, but you should reward yourself after reaching milestones. This could be anything from meals at your favorite restaurants to new tools for your toolbox! It’s easy to lose motivation when you’re doing work that doesn’t have a direct impact on something you care about. While it may be difficult to see the forest for the trees, keep your long-term goal in mind.

Find a way to frame long-term goals in short-term steps. This is an effective way of keeping motivated for those who struggle with goals that seem too daunting or distant. Even small progress is something to celebrate and remind yourself that the end goal is becoming closer!
