Yes, I realize that is from the rules in Zombieland, but if you think about how I’m approaching it, it does actually make sense.
Most goals are usually long-term, or maybe you do have a short-term goal like something you want to complete in the next month. But have you ever had a mini (or nano) goal that you wanted to complete the same day?
Make mini-goals. Nano-goals, if you want.
For the day. For the week. For the next five minutes. Whatever you need to stay on track and feeling like you can do this.
Each time you hit those tiny goals, reward yourself (in a healthy way). Remember how you feel after completing these goals. They can be mini-goals to the short term or even the much larger goals that you have.
