3 Key Points:

1.  Humans like to win. Set yourself up for small victories; celebrate when you achieve your goals.

2.  Know your baseline. Where are you now? Why do you want to achieve this goal? Make a record of where you’re starting from.

3.  Let yourself relax. You’ll go the distance if you give yourself time to refuel occasionally.
