At times it could be difficult to force yourself todo a task (like exercise) daily. Here is what Jerry Sienfield uses to motivaet himself to write comedy, daily.

Get a big wall calendar that has a whole year on one page and hang it on a prominent wall. The next step is to get a big red magic marker.

For each day that you do the task, you put a big red X over that day. After a few days you’ll have a chain. Just keep at it and the chain will grow longer every day. You’ll like seeing that chain, especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job next is to not break the chain.

Don’t break the chain.
