reward yourself

To keep going at your goals I find it very important to reward yourself frequently.  Your list of tangible items you want is a good place to start.  First, make sure your lists include the smaller things in life.  I love gourmet chocolate, so I've got that on my list.  When I accomplish a goal I try to find something that is proportional on my list of things I want and get it.  Often the goal and the item correlate financial in some way.  A completed web site (and subsequent check) might warrent a pen or clothes.  A successful sales call might warrent some chocolate or something.  Basically you're training yourself like a dog to keep motivated.  It really works.
