Whether it's personal or professional, make time to set goals for yourself. Keeping your goals visible as a constant reminder will help you stay on track! You can post your goals to the screen of your computer or on a bulletin board in your kitchen. Keeping goals top of mind will help you achieve them.

Incentivize Yourself

Take your goals a step further and create an incentive to stay on task. For every goal you have, put a positive 'score' or points against it. For every distraction, put negative points against it. Set a overarching point goal that will motivate you to stay focused. If you achieve your point goal, give yourself a treat. That treat could be anything, big or small, that would give you the incentive needed to stay motivated!

  • Try a new recipe +10 points
  • Practice guitar +5 points
  • 30 Minutes of Exercise +5 points
  • Finish a book +15 points
  • 1 hour watching TV -5 points
  • 30 minutes of social media -5 points

Give yourself the space you need to do each of these tasks to make it more enjoyable! If you're reading a book, light a candle and pour a nice glass of wine. If you're testing a new recipe, put on some fun music! If you have a work related goal, make sure your workspace is setup so you can be as productive as possible. A little natural light in your work space can inspire happiness and creativity.

Being home can be productive and fun-- it's up to you to #MakeTime for what inspires you!
