To stay motivated and exceed previous performance, occasionally removing rewards is crucial. As you accomplish goals, the dopamine release diminishes, making you crave more. Blunting the reward response for intermediate goals is important to avoid a crash and maintain healthy levels of dopamine. This can be done by not celebrating every win. By doing so, you keep your dopamine system in check and ensure continued pursuit of all goals. Big increases in dopamine lead to big crashes and increased investment in unachievable goals. Celebrate your wins, but not every win, to stay on the path of progress.
