At our Art school we would be given an exercise meant to improve our ambition and goal setting. It takes making some poster
designs from photographs that depict various stages of your work (ideally four, five, posters to contain a whole story of the process). You should hang them around your apartment, in such way that it escorts you towards the main door of the place (daily exit into daily routine which is often among the motivation burners) with the most advanced image. This "step", a last glimpse before exiting your place can serve as a psychological tool to keep you aware of your passion for self-expression, by installing large images of your own work-in-progress. It served the purpose for several of my colleagues, as well as me.
