I am working on some motivation and goal setting program(s) and was wondering what are proper and improper ways to think about motivation and goal setting? I want to make sure I don't do anything that is mentally destructive that I have likely done in the past, such as setting the bar way too high and beating myself up for not achieving, or expecting I will make a 180 change in a field and then be upset when it doesn't happen the next day. For example, are the following statements okay?: I will do everything in my power to get this part of my life handled if I do X action, or don't do X action, what will my life look like in five years? [I am and away from motivator] Additionally, are there any particular good threads or articles about this? Thanks!
