You've already set up accountability. With your commitment to a plan and your daily reminders you are holding yourself accountable. To help your cause, recruit others to hold you accountable. This will boost your incentive.
Think about the people you know. Who is important to you. Who is likely to support and encourage you. Who is likely to hold you accountable to what you say. Once you've listed your goals and determined your plan, tell these people exactly what you intend to do. Encourage them to support you and hold you to your goals. Meet with these people on a regular basis. This will give you incentive to accomplish your measurable steps and your ultimate goals. This will encourage you to evaluate your progress on a regular basis. And this will set you up so you can't chicken out.
