Motivation Is Extremely Important Towards Goal Completion
One of the big keys in goal setting is motivation because it assures commitment. One of the important things I do is list the reasons why I am attempting to complete a goal so that I stay motivated. I do this exercise once a week so that I remind myself why I am doing it. Edwin Locke came up with a theory that is somewhat similar to what I am doing: Goal Setting Theory.
Edwin Locke’s theory seems to describe incentives but those incentives don’t have to involve money. Some of the reasons for my motivation towards goals does not involve money at all. Other goals that I have do involve money in that it helps make my life more worry free. One of the goals I have is to go to Vermont so that I can visit with family and vacation. Relaxation and “getting away” is a big motivator for that particular goal.
Other Interesting Stuff On Website
Maslow’s Need Hierarchy Model is another interesting subject that is on the website because it can help break down motivation factors. I can look at Maslow’s Need Hierarchy Model and understand some of my past behaviors. For example, I have kicked some people out of my life due to a lack or respect because we all need respect from others.
So, it makes sense to kick people out of your life who do not seem to respect you. That being said, you also need to respect yourself too though! Which I do! Just some people do not respect others because they do not respect themselves. You can’t have respect for others unless you first respect yourself. You will also tolerate disrespect from others and not kick them out of your life when you don’t respect yourself. The website has boatloads of information and is a valuable resource.
