When Milton Erickson said, “A goal without a date is just a dream!”, he was right. The date is a deadline. It’s what creates the urgency required, to motivate us to take action.
Setting a date
Here’s a suggestion: Set a completion date for each of the goals and tasks you’re struggling with. It will help you to focus your mind, create urgency and power you over the finish line.
Need some extra help? If you want to increase your motivation even more, share your deadline with people. This multiplies the cost of quitting, by adding public accountability.
