Do you ever have problems getting motivated? I sure do.
Why not reward yourself when you get things done? By “reward,” I mean money. Pay yourself to get things done.
I’m trying to ride my bike more. But it’s hard to get motivated to ride. The irony is that I like riding.
So when I was on my ride this evening, I came up with this “pay myself” idea. I’ll reward myself for riding my bicycle. I think it will help get me motivated.
The bike payment plan
The plan I came up with is pretty simple. For every day that I ride at least 30 minutes, I’ll put $0.75 in my “bike fund.” I can use this money, and only this money, to buy cycling gear.
This is still the planning phase, so my plan might change slightly. I want to get the right balance where I will have to ride a lot to buy any gear. But I also want to get some new gear fairly often, to show the fruits of my efforts.
What’s your plan
The best part of this idea is that it can work for many things. And maybe you could “pay” yourself with something other than money.
Do you have a place in your life where you could implement this idea?
