Step 4. Make it fun!
Don’t be too earnest with your resolutions. Adding some fun to your goals can help you stick with it when your motivation’s down.
Here are some ideas and accoutrements that can add a little levity to getting your goal.
Music, podasts or audiobooks; cute workout-wear
Being a better cook
Your favorite celebrity-chef DVDs; beautiful cookbooks
Being less grumpy
Comedy DVDs; funny novels
Taking up camping
Sorry dude, you’re on your own
Also remember to celebrate your successes. Acknowledging what you’ve achieved reinforces your efforts and helps strengthen your persistence muscles – so you’ll be in great shape for the next goal you want to pursue.
