|What's the goal?|
However, this lack of "purpose" is a quick path to procrastination. Why work without a reason? So, today, let's go through our list of things to do and link each element with a larger goal. What goal does the task address?
To-do to Goal
Task: Assign a larger goal to each item on your to-do list.
Info: This is an easy DMG. At the end of each task, in parenthesis, come up with some larger purpose or goal that is associated with the task. For this exercise, the "bigger picture" the better. You want to remind yourself of the reason you're doing something in the first place. When I do this, I'm quickly motivated to push through and get to work, because now I have a reason to do so.
Goal: Increase motivation by giving your work purpose.
