With New Year’s resolution-making in progress it’s apparent that people want to make changes because they’ve had enough. They’re unhappy with some aspect of their life they are freshly determined to change.
For dedicated gym-goers January is a time for disgruntlement as the gyms fill up with the newly-dedicated determined to get in shape, or get back into shape. By mid-February all is back to normal with the great majority of New Year’s newbies having lost interest in their most recent determined goal.
However there’s no rule that says you have to wait until January 1st to make a new resolution, nor a rule that if stuff gets in the way and you have to back off your resolution for the time being that you can’t just restart once the dark cloud blows over.
In fact, resolutions made at any time of year other than January 1st have a much higher rate of being fulfilled and being successful.
No matter what you resolution for change for the better is, start now, or start later. The important thing is that you do indeed start.
