Research suggest that there are some powerful advantages of frequently monitoring progress. Among other things it may contribute to your motivation, well-being and even health. To try how monitoring progress might work for you I suggest you keep a progress diary for one month.
Instruction: Choose a notebook, diary or word file to write in every night. During the day, pay attention to any progress you make in relation to anything you find important. At the end of each day write down 3 examples of progress you have made during the day, no matter how small that progress may be. Also, write down how you managed to create that progress. Write down, as specifically as possible, what it was that you did which worked well. Estimated time: 10-15 minutes per day.
