Easier Resolutions

A writer's EULA »

Why do we start things on Mondays or after Labor Day or on the first day of the month or on New Year’s Day?

It seems like a good idea.

We’ll get a fresh start when a new week, season, month, or year begins. This year I quietly started on some of my resolutions early. I decided that that way, when the New Year started I would have a week or two under my belt with the new behavior I’ve resolved to follow and so it would be easier to stick to my resolutions.

January first I won’t be waking up cold turkey to begin a lot of new projects and to adopt a lot of new behaviors—I’ll just need to keep doing what I’m doing.

What about you? Are there things you’re planning to start soon? What are you waiting for?
