Sort of like the gold star stickers some teachers used on their classroom calendars. (I never had one of those teachers, but I've heard about them.)
She asked me if I'd ever tried the method and I admitted I had, but I usually only got three days in before I forgot about the stickers, or stopped making progress, or gave up on my goals.
Now I make To Do lists. Lots of them. I have a daily To Do list. I have a weekly To DO list. Project lists, monthly lists, annual lists…Hell, I even have a bucket list.
But I don't use gold stars (or in my friend's case, cartoon character stickers).
I'm thinking of trying the Gold Star Method in 2015, but first I'll have to get a calendar and some stickers. Sounds like a good excuse to make a quick trip to the dollar store.
Tell me Killer Friends: Do YOU use gold stars to track your accomplishments? If you do, what do you use them for and what does your method look like? If you don't, what could you use a gold star for?
