Everyday Well-Being

Draw up a contract for yourself that commits you to a goal.

How to do it

Want to get motivated to achieve a goal? Draw up a little contract with yourself. For example, if you want to take an exercise class, pick a day by which you'll have researched and registered for it. Write "I promise to look into classes and register for one by [a specific date]." Sign and date the contract, and place it somewhere you'll see it every day.

Why it matters

Signing a formal contract with yourself appeals to your sense of duty and obligation, making it less likely you'll skip out on the essential steps needed for success. A personal contract also puts procrastination on hold because it specifies when you'll fit your commitments into an already busy schedule. Bonus: Every time you fulfill a contract with yourself, you'll feel a sense of achievement.

Fun fact

There are more than 60 marathons held worldwide in the month of April alone, from the Canberra Marathon in Australia's capital city to the Marathon Deutsch Weinstrasse in Bockenheim, Germany.
