Neuroscience studies on goals and motivation show individuals who focused on how much
progress they already made towards a goal were less motivated to attain the goal because they felt satisfaction. Those who focused on how much more they needed to accomplish to meet the goal actually fired up the prefrontal cortex and became more motivated. It’s the glass half
full/empty idea. If you want to feel satisfaction, then focus on what you’ve already accomplished. If you want a burst of motivation focus on what you need to get done. This is a simple way to manipulate your own neurotransmitters for an intended effect. What’s on your menu today, satisfaction or motivation? You can’t lose!
