One of the things I’ve noticed having set up some financial goals is that just determining the goal is only a small portion of the accomplishment. The next component is actually achieving the goal which is often where the last part comes in: The determination. Sticking to your goals is where being determined and persistent comes in.
Since I got my goals in place and starting to see some success I’ve found that keeping determined and persistent with my goals is a serious challenge. At the beginning of the goal the idea is fresh in your mind and you’re raring to go, but over time seeing some minor improvements isn’t enough by itself to keep me motivated. Once this sets in keeping the same level of intensity has always been a challenge for me.
Keeping the idea and the goal visible has helped me keep things on track but it’s only moderately successful. What have people found to be helpful keeping yourself motivated with your goals?
