Marking even a small task done can feel as good as a celebrating the end of a project. It’s a physiological and psychological event that increases motivation.
When we experience success, be it something large or small, our brain releases dopamine. That chemical causes us to feel pleasure, and therefore encourages you to continue and repeat the behaviour. Dopamine is therefore an important part in creating and maintaining motivation. And that is crucial for every project’s success.
So start planning your projects with first thinking through what needs to be done. And make sure you mark your tasks done to stay motivated!
