Leverage the Power of "Done" to Achieve Goals


During a marathon, organizers typically set up signs along the route to indicate distances completed. For example, one might say, “You’ve just finished 4K!” They do that for two reasons: to let runners know where they are; and, to motivate them.


Why are these signs motivational? They give runners an ongoing sense of accomplishment. The runners have “finished” a certain section of the marathon. They’ve reached a milestone. That part is done! As a result, they feel inspired to continue on.


You may feel the same way when you finish a project or task. Energized!

You can use this phenomenon to help you reach your 2022 goals. If you have a big goal, you can divide it into specific milestones that will give you that motivating sense of completion. Say, for example, you want to lose weight. Your milestones might include:

  • Make a nutritional eating plan.

  • Find a weight loss buddy to share the journey.

  • Lose your first 5 pounds.

As you check off each milestone, you’ll become motivated to take on the next. Give this technique a try in the new year!
