Set measurable goals for yourself.
Channel Mario Balotelli and set attainable goals for the end of your internship. Are you hoping to get something published online? Are you hoping to meet ten new people in the industry? Perhaps your goal is to establish a few new professional relationships that could lead to a job down the line. Make specific goals that you can look back on at the end of the internship, check off if successful, and feel totally accomplished. Pat yourself on the back, if necessary.
