    How do you keep yourself motivated ?

    Being a webmaster (working full time online for living) is not an easy task in long run as it can take heavy toll on you mentally and physically. Sitting in front of PC for hours, easy day, every week, every month can certainly cause lot of physical and mental problems, needless to say, loss of Motivation.

    So What do you do to keep yourself motivated ? I know money and fear are great motivators but still, anything else ?

    I believe that setting goals helps. It's easier to motivate yourself to reach an exact number than it is to motivate yourself to reach a fuzzy picture of where you want to be.

    But most importantly, I think it's important to enjoy what you are doing. If you are enjoying yourself, motivation is not so difficult.

    The pay checks of celebrity bloggers and affiliate marketers keep me motivated

    Like Will said, setting goals will helps.

    Use an organizer such as outlook, moleskin or whatever works for you and build a task list to reach your major goals.

    Make sure each task is small but relevant to the major goal. Smaller tasks help you reduce procrastination since you'll feel good for every task you finish.

    When I become focused on a business idea, I also narrow my circle of friends. Negative people, especially "friends", are sure to kill motivation, hope and many dreams...on the flip side they can also encourage and support; that's the tough part...

    How do you know what type of monetary goals to set, when you are just starting out and have nothing to base figures on?
    That is my problem with goal setting right now.
