Examples of Common Motivators and Rewards
Put money in a jar every day you make progress toward your goal. At the end of the month, spend it.
Take a photo of each person you have helped. Write a short caption. Fill a scrapbook or buliten board.
Bank 5-10 minutes for every day you worked on your goal. At the end of the week, use your minutes to catch up with someone.
Every week or month, step back to look at what you have created. Your product thus far will be satisfying and motivating.
Keep track of the number of people you have influenced. Celebrate their accomplishments.
Show off your accomplishments by framing and displaying them in a prominent place. Be sure to add them to your resume.
Enter competitions, create them with friends and collegues, and/or even challenge yourself.

The general idea is to break down your goal into smaller benchmarks. Then reward yourself as soon as those benchmarks are met with something that you value. Don’t wait until the end goal is reached. The journey and progress is what makes us happy!
