3. Write them all down
An approach providing practical help in implementing the previously described recommendation is having a visual reminder of what you have planned to achieve in a given period of time. After you have carefully determined your training goal, write it down on a piece of paper, a post-it note or in your agenda, so that it becomes one of your to-do tasks of the week, just like your department meeting or university lecture.
The more visible it is, the more you will perceive it as an obligation, which will in turn make you more disciplined in your training.
