All improvements occur when we get in the groove of doing things consistently.
But sometimes this can be easier said than done.
One way to boost your internal motivation is to simply track your actions using a simple grid like the one outlined below.
Choose something you want to work on. Then each day you complete this action, tick it off and give yourself a high five. The goal is to string as many successful days together as possible.
It sounds ridiculous but the desire to maintain your winning streak can be a really good motivator.
In fact popular social media companies like Snapchat use this same psychological trick to keep millions of people engaged with their platform.
Try it and see.
