Don’t wait til January 1st

With the new year just around the corner, you’re probably starting to reflect on the past year.  Even if it’s merely at a subconscious level, the ending of one thing and the beginning of another tends to stimulate the desire for change within yourself.

We’ve all seen ourselves (and others) commit to New Year’s resolutions that hardly ever manifest.  Which is why you should start preparing for that resolution now.

There are many resolutions that we all make every year.

Like Working out.  This is normally at the top of everyone’s list.

Or Eating healthy.  This resolution tends to go hand-in-hand with the previous one.  And while eating healthy is on the top of everyone’s New Year’s resolution list, it’s a hard habit to stick to.

For the most part I always thought it was silly to actually wait for the new year to start most resolutions.  But there are 2 specific resolutions that you absolutely shouldn’t wait for the new year to start.

1. Starting (or stopping) a habit

Breaking and creating habits is not an easy process. Which is probably why we wait for something pressing–like the New Year–to consider making that shift.

It’s easier to put off things like quitting smoking until the New Year, just like it’s easier to sleep in instead of setting your alarm to implement the habit of waking up early.

Whatever habit it is that you are putting off until the New Year, consider making steps toward it today.

Regardless of what you want your New Year’s resolution to be, you don’t need to wait until January 1st to start practicing it.  By implementing this “resolution mentality” into your life right now, you will create the space and regimen you need to actually stick to the resolutions you put in place for yourself this year.

2. Being more productive

Reflecting on the past year may have made you realize all the little things you wish you had done but didn’t have the time for.  There is a reason productivity is constantly at the top of everyone’s New Year’s resolution lists.

Instead of waiting until next year, use the momentum you’ve gained coming to this conclusion to start trying to be more productive now.

Read that book you’ve been wanting to read.

Start that project.

Start working on the skill you’ve always wanted to acquire.

Build your SLDLB business.

Productivity doesn’t just happen.  It’s a habit that is refined over time.  So, the sooner you start being proactive about your productivity, the sooner your productivity will prosper.

Many of us feel the need to wait until the New Year to develop that skill or start that project.

Why wait?

Start working on your routine now, and you’ll start January three steps ahead of where you would have been otherwise.

The New Year is a wonderful time to set positive intentions.  And the end of the year is a great time to start reflecting and manifesting these ambitions.  Even if all you do is create a list, start thinking about and implementing your New Year’s resolutions today–so you have a stronger chance of achieving your goals in the new year.

To the New Year.
