How do you stay motivated to reach larger goals?
I tend to break mine down into smaller chunks and daily "to do" lists that I can cross off and seeing progress keeps me motivated. How do you build and maintain enthusiasm for your loftier goals?
With the big goals in mind?,,, I establish smaller goals needed to be achieved in order to reach those larger goals...
That way I can mark little accomplishments along the way... Each little accomplishment their own reward.
Reward enough to keep me motivated, and wanting to achieve the next little goal along the way to the the largest goal.
Breaking them down to smaller attainable goals is how I achieve the bigger goals as well. I used to take massive amounts of action and try to set the bar impossibly high to then become disillusioned, frustrated and eventually I would quit.
By creating a step-by-step method and do one step each week or so. Also, have a picture of the end result near an area you spend plenty of time at so you always remember.
First, I visualize everything I want, from a frame of mind of "If you couldn't fail... what would you want to do?", so that I don't preset any limitations in my goals. Then, once I've written down my visualized outcomes, I break those down into "smaller big goals", then I visualize the steps in reverse order to reaching the "bigger picture", as well as the smaller goals - writing down each step it would take to get from my visualized goals, down to where I am at the current moment. I find it's very inspiring to look at things that way
i try to remain focused always to reach the larger goal and stepping a step a day towards it.
small steps and small achievements are simple way to keep the motivation level at par to cross the long path for a larger goal.

How can you stay motivated to excercise?

I am such a champ at procrastination. I am well aware that this online thing takes time, effort, and lots of work. Yet for the past couple of days, I have not been able to get motivated to do anything constructive online. Of course, I've had time to post on the forum's 'last post contest' thread...
