Celebrate interim goals

According to researchers Latham and Sejits, interim goals can make you more motivated. They saw that teams that broke down long-term goals into interim goals could increase their productivity and motivation. The psychology of learning also shows that encouragement, like celebrating goals, increases motivation. When you celebrate achieving your interim goals, you celebrate more often than you would if you only celebrate the long-term goals. Quite simply, you get extra motivation from setting and celebrating interim goals. Planning celebrations boosts the energy you need for the whole process.
