Here's an excerpt for you:
Set some achievable goals. By setting yourself some worthy yet attainable goals, you have something to look forward to. Pick goals which really inspire you and that make the most of your talents and skills. Picture what you really want. Take care not to set the bar too low––low goals will not motivate you and are too easy to sidestep with excuses that you've already achieved them. The types of lofty long-term goals you might like to strive for include: saving to buy a home or red sports car, starting a family, completing an educational qualification, or fulfilling your life long dreams (maybe you've been wanting to open a bookstore, an arcade, or start your own publishing company). For short-term goals, you might use deadlines or events as the endpoint. Make a to-do list, both of large and small things, and prioritize each one in terms of time needed and importance to you personally.
