Reward Yourself

Hi Everyone

I have recently worked very hard to complete 10 modules of a Level 4 IAG Diploma. (Information, Advice and Guidance.)

I got given my modules on the 4th of May and had a tight deadline of the 25th of June, that was extended to the 27th of June.  This Diploma is often done over a year and so I had my work cut out. With a lot of self-discipline, a lack of sleep and a huge amount of motivation, I succeeded in getting my coursework in by the 27th of June.

In order to motivate myself, I created a rewards list.  That got larger and larger as time went on and I put more hours in to working.  The list did work and now I am rewarding myself and it feels great.  Here is my list:

  • Meet my friends
  • See my Grandma
  • Visit my parents
  • Eat sugar free, gluten free, chocolate ice-cream
  • Go to the cinema
  • Rent movies out

This list is not exhaustive, but captures all of the main points.  Your list will be about what’s important to you.

In order to motivate yourself, it is essential to reward yourself once the work is done.  It is important to give yourself little rewards as you go along, for the work you have done so far but if you tell yourself, you are not allowed to do some of the things until you have completed the work and it’s things you really want and need to do, then it will incentivise you to get the work done.

What is on your rewards list?

Stay positive

Sandra
