I work well with rewards. It’s the getting to the short term goals that has always been the kicker. I’m invested in myself now, more so than ever before so I’m going to write down my goals, both short term and long term to give myself some things to look forward to. I'll put these on their own page, or on the side of my blog once I have them set in stone.

I need suggestions..advice…something..lol. Are my goals spaced too far apart? Just right? Not enough? I went with the percentage system. First goal is 5%, second is 10%, third is 15% and so on. And what kinds of goals/rewards did you set for yourselves? What’s the perfect reward for attaining your “final” goal?
