Today I bring you the last step in my trek towards getting stuff done this year! Okay, so there probably won’t really be a ‘last step’ because I’m sure I’ll change things as I go, but not the point. The point is that this is the fun part!
Rewards – Surprisingly this isn’t something I’ve ever tried before. I’m not sure why I hadn’t thought of it before, but I’m going to give it a try! Everyone will have their own thing that the would qualify as a “reward”…. whether it’s eating out one night, getting that facial you’ve been wanting, a day off without doing any housework, etc. Whatever it is make it something good that you don’t get very often or something that you love that you somehow never find time to do!
For me it’s probably shopping. I’ve always been good with money and know where every dollar is going, so it’s really hard for me to spend money guiltlessly. “I could buy this sweater, but I should probably put that money towards groceries or credit cards instead”. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing, but I pretty much never let myself buy things until I really need them, so buying that $10 nail polish would definitely fall into the Reward category for me.
Since I have daily tasks and weekly goals I think monthly rewards make sense. If I get to the end of the month and have a calendar full of gold check marks then it’s guilt-free shopping time for me!! Hmmm I really should’ve thought of this sooner…
