While going around to the various road races this summer, I found something very interesting to me. That was the stories of how people begin. Many of us know that sometimes starting new things can be hard not only physically, but mentally. Making something a habit is not easy. The best way that I have found to do this is to hold myself accountable for my goal. This is usually by sticking some sort of reminder right out in front of my face. That is how we came up with Purpose Sticks collection.
Basically you take which ever Purpose Sticks that meets your goal, say 13.1 you put it on your calendar, insert it in the edge of your mirror or any other crazy place that you sit and stare at. Then when you feel very unmotivated you’ll be forced notice your goal, and you’ll remember why it is you started. This will hold you accountable for your goal. Then when you meet this goal of yours, you take the sticker and slap it on your car, your water bottle or whatever else and you proudly show off your accomplishment.
Ideas of where to post it for motivation maximization:
- Bathroom wall
- Bedroom wall
- On your office calendar
- Prop it up on your lap top
- Outside a cupboard door
- Anywhere you look every day
Ideas of where to sport it once you’ve met your goal:
- Water bottle
- Your shirt for the day (they don’t go through the wash well) J
- Your motorcycle
- Your kayak
- Golf cart
- Lunch box
- Trapper keeper
- Anywhere! Just let it be known, you’re awesome!
