And sometimes, if the goal is to shallow or easy, the motivation I do have slowly wains.
Let me tell you about two goals that scare me:
This summer, I'm cycling 800km with these friends in 6 days over the Rocky Mountains (Calgary to Kelowna). More about that in a future blog:
but in terms of my motivation....it's SKY HIGH. Why? Because my goal, scares me.
Or how about my triathlon, this sunday. Today I did my final brick workout (putting 3 of the disciplines together in one workout: swim, bike, run) at about 65% effort and I'll taper/rest for the next three days leading up to the event:
but in terms of my motivation....it's AMPED. Why? Because my goal, scares me.
Now remember, your goal doesn't have to be athletic. It can be an interest, hobby, a book you really want/need to read....but it must scare you and be just a tad out of reach. When you've found a goal like this...maybe like me, you'll watch your motivation explode.
