To stay motivated to finish up your action steps, use your to-do list to motivate yourself to work little harder for the rewards of success.
It is a proven fact that people are motivated not by what they have already accomplished, but by finishing up what is left to do on the list.
Next time you have a project with a long to-do list, review your list often. As you see things being removed and that your list is getting shorter, you will be inspired to finish up all your necessary tasks.
