Day 80 – Bonus

Friday, March 22, 2013

Offer your mind a meaningful reward for finishing strongly. Give yourself an added incentive. Let the brain get stimulated and excited for a significant reward. Of course, it needs to be something enticing enough to drive desired behavior. You have to get the mind to think about the rewards of succeeding.

The mind is rewards-driven especially when something is very meaningful. So dig deep and unearth the ultimate reward as an incentive to finish strongly. Finding the right reward can boost you into an extra gear you never knew you had.

Ensure the bonus is not some pie in the sky dream, it needs to be something achievable within the context of the allotted time left. Offer the bonus and incite your mind to drive the right behavior. You should choose a bonus that you are dying to achieve, something that really stimulates you. Shoot for the moon, if you miss, you still end up among the stars.
