4. Make a Ulysses Pact.
“Named for the clever hero of the Trojan war, the Ulysses Pact is a technique for holding yourself accountable to stick with a goal even when it’s hard,” explains Nick Wignall .
What’s the key ingredient in a Ulysses Pact? It’s “that we make a choice in the present (when things are relatively easy) that binds us to perform an action in the future (when things are hard).”
In short, the Ulysses Pact helps you maintain high motivation when things get tough by locking in a future behavior ahead of time.
Sweet like a chic-a-cherry-cola.
