50 Challenges: No 24 Count Your Wins

The previous challenge was to avoid drift, and to set some goals. This week we look at what happens when you achieve them.

Sometimes (is it a British thing?) we can think too much of the goals that are still outstanding. Or worse still, thinking that the goal achieved should have been bigger. For example losing  3 lb in a month, rather than the 2 lb planned and achieved.

So when you achieve a goal, acknowledge it. Rewarding yourself may be appropriate (though a box of chocolate for losing 2 lb may not be). Celebrate and share, but above all, acknowledge it to yourself.

And then work out what happens next: a revised goal, a new one, or just maintaining what you have already achieved.
