Do 4 Things. Achieve Your Goal. (Update 104 rides in 52 weeks)

What if it’s a really big parking lot?
It’s only Jan. 12, and my resolution to get out of the car is already crumbling. The extra commutes-by-muscle accumulated last summer are dwindling, and my one-year deadline (April 15) to car-free-commute 104 times in 52 weeks is speeding toward us.
This calls for an intervention.
I conducted a study of Self Help experts on the subject.
To reach goals you need to do 4 things:
1. Make a plan. Write it down. Divide it into 5 subgoals. Write them down. Choose areward for every milestone. Write it down. Look at all three, every day.
2. Imagine how reaching the goal will benefit you and other people.
4. Start. Just start. Subconscious minds don’t like unfinished projects and will niggle and nag until a job is done. People who don’t get started, don’t get started, or finished. They procrastinate.
