Creating a rewards system for yourself, if done so correctly, can increase your productivity and motivation. When you’re in the thick of your work, not having a break seems daunting and almost makes you want to stop entirely. However, if you work little rewards into your study time, it’s easier to work on through difficult study sessions.
Goals are an essential part towards creating a meaningful and intrinsically-rewarding life. Goals motivate us to work hard and to be our best and happiest selves. Forming these goals to be a SMART(ER) goal can create clarity in your end-objective and the process to get there, recenter you towards achieving your goal, and determine how to effectively allocate your resources to achieve the goal.
