The best way to make sure that you actually achieve a goal you set for yourself is to let others know about it and ask them to help make sure you get there.
If their friendship is worth even a little bit, they’ll help you. They’ll ask you about your goal until you ask them to stop.
You’ll be motivated, too, as you don’t want to let down the trust and faith your friends have put in you.
