Making the Most of Middles
Sometimes reaching the middle - of a project, of the year, of life - dulls our interest and causes us to stall. Other times, they reinvogorate and recharge us, stimulating our motivation and moving us forward. How can you use the midpoint of a project to spark rather than slump?
What You'll Need
- Something you're working towards
What You'll Do
- Focus on the process not the outcome. Sometimes when we get all caught up in the final outcome, we lose sight of what's important. I set my challenge not becasue it's important that I run 1000 but because I wanted to run regularly. So that's what I'm doing. I've gone back to running every day - that means I'm generally running shroter distances but I'm running every day and my mileage is climbing back up as a result. Remind yourself why you started or what's important to you and focus on that.
- Set interim goals. the only way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time. Breaking big goals or projects down into smaller steps helps keep you motivation by giving you more immediate satisfaction.
