I have some challenging goals for this year – mainly including getting back my fitness level and saving $$. One thing that I realized has been working really well – is looking at my goals every single day … actually, multiple times a day – because I put them in places that I look every day.I swear by … Put motivational quotes on all your screens.
💕 Use motivational wallpapers on your personal and work computer screen backgrounds. My current (home computer) wallpaper is below.
The image above is from 29 Inspirational Wallpapers for Your Desktop.
💕 Add motivational quotes or images to your phone’s screen too. I set the wallpaper of my lockscreen.
💕 Change the motivational quote / image often, or use the option to rotate images, so you’ll see different quotes throughout the day.
💕 Look at goals and progress (or lack thereof) often. This year, both my husband and I are invested in being fit and losing some weight. Contrary to popular opinion, we look at the scale every damn day. Multiple times a day. It seems odd, but having this in front of our eyes daily has made a World of difference. The times I don’t look are the times I know I’ve fallen off the wagon (so to speak).
I also love using my bank’s mobile app. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t look at the $ in my savings. It doesn’t change – but it makes me want to find ways to spend less, so I can see that number grow more.
💕 Track It. My husband uses a simple document on his iPad and notes his weight every day. I use a Google spreadsheet to track my runs. we’ve both opted to keep it as simple as possible – but however you do it – just do it!
How do you keep track of your goals and progress?
