I went crazy and bought a whole bunch of little stickers to signify every little thing I would like to work on. So I have separate stickers for both eating the kinds of foods I want to eat for meals, and not eating sweets and other junk food for snacks. If I don't go to the coffee shop for one whole day, that's TWO stickers because I usually go twice in one day. I have separate stickers for practicing guitar and bass as well as a separate category for other instruments such as drum pad and musical saw. I have separate stickers for walks and other exercises such as crunches and pushups.
I give myself a small monetary reward for each of these things I achieve on a daily basis. I originally intended to make little payments on my credit card balance almost every day based on how much of these rewards I earned, but the money got tight, so I just use the monthly total reward as a benchmark for how I want to do the next month. As it goes with the individual goals, I set the next month's reward goal at a bit less than what I achieved the earlier month, so that I will have it in my mind that I can attain the goal I set. This helps me to go ahead and do all this stuff, and that makes it more likely that I will approach or tie the previous mark before the end of the month, and then I will have the rest of the month to exceed the previous mark. See how I'm going on about this topic? Ah, obsession!
I think that Facebook wanted me to download their app for my phone this morning, so it wouldn't let me log on through the Chrome browser as usual. I thought that Facebook had a hell of a nerve trying to push me around, given all the stuff that's come out about them since the 2016 election and afterwards, so I deleted my account today. It will take a full month before I will be completely off of Facebook and not able to just log into my account if I change my mind. I don't know if I can do it. I will lose my friends who read this blog from the site, so that might affect my decision on whether to go ahead and do it or not. In the mean, I'm going to try to get contact information for any one of my old friends I don't have info for, and if I succeed in getting off of Facebook after a while, I may consider some other social media site.
