Arbitrary Future Dates

It’s funny how every year people decide they’re going to start exercising January 1st.  They claim that starting January 1st they won’t eat a single serving of unhealthy food.

But almost everyone who begins a new diet on January 1st breaks their New Years resolution.  Why?

For one, they set goals that are initially too aggressive. Because willpower is a finite resource, they’re setting themselves up for failure.

But more than that, the reason they fail is because they set an arbitrary future date to begin forming new behaviors.

This alone almost guarantees they’ll fail.  If making a change in your life is truly important you won’t wait until tomorrow.

If you truly cared about changing something in your life you’d start working towards it now.
