If you face difficulties pursuing your goals over a long period of time you can use other people to create public pressure. Announcing your goal makes it more difficult to give up or procrastinate:
- Tell your coworkers you’re going to achieve a goal and report on your progress from time to time.
- Tell your family and friends about your goal and ask them to keep you motivated. Keep them updated and report on the progress of the action items.
- Write about your goa on a blog or 43Things and post regular updates.
- Print your goals and the progress of action items and place them at a prominent place in your house of office.
