The key to motivation is to keep tracking your progress.
Knowing it is the easy part.

Tracking your progress is the difficult part.
Because if you won’t, no one else will do that for you.

It is difficult because we don’t see mountains moving on the basis of daily efforts.
Yet if we keep putting in the daily efforts, they do move over a period of weeks, months, or years!

However, in order to reach that place, we need to be motivated. To be motivated, we need to keep tracking our progress. Even when we don’t feel like. So that when we actually don’t feel like working, our tiny steps will remind us that our work does make a difference.

Motivation comes from daily insignificant actions, that create significance over time.
