A friend said, "You should set mini goals," and I said, "That's a splendid idea," and then I said, "What are mini goals?" 

It turns out mini goals are sort of intermediate goals with a one-off reward for everyone, such as "Hit $500 and I'll colonise Mars" or something. Anyway, it turns out colonising Mars is impractical for several reasons, so if anyone has any bright ideas about what might constitute something more sensible that you'd like to see, please write to me about it, and we'll see if any suggestions are less problematical than turning up on on Mars with a pup tent and a rucksack full of Pot Noodles. 

Thanks,
