Personally, I've been working a lot more on making goals in my life. An example that comes to mind is my desire to memorize part (if not someday all ) of Romans. To help me with this goal (which I struggle to practice consistently) I've been writing down in a little note book every day I practice and what I'm able to recite. Doing that has helped me see my progress, and keeps me from getting overwhelmed when I'm tempted to look at the big picture - memorizing whole chapters...
See, goals don't have to be about doing the most you can do, the fastest you can, and doing it until you can't think to do anything else - goals can be small, consistent habits that you work on for set amounts of time. Those type of goals are the ones you will more likely achieve.
