Tip #44. Start on Day One!

How often do you hear people saying things like "I’ll start eating only healthy food from next Monday", "I’ll start exercising on September 1st" etc. Did you note that many people want to change their life on some special day like first day of the week or month?

There is some magic in that Day One and for some reason we think that if we start something on that specific day we have somehow more chances to succeed. While some people may find rationale behind it, I personally think it’s a special procrastination trick which we use, often subconsciously. This is the reason we come up with to avoid doing something right now.

But today I suggest you use this trick consciously. Guess what – Number One Day One is here, and it’s January 1st, 2008. Isn’t it a good reason to start something new and exciting? You’ll have to wait a whole year until next January 1st if you miss this opportunity. I’m not necessary talking about becoming an early riser, I’m sure there are many other great habits that keep avoiding you (or rather you avoiding them?). Or maybe there are some bad habits you want to quit? Start new life on Day One!

If you happen to read this post after January 1st and “miss the deadline”, don’t be upset. There are many other "special" days you can find in a calendar. Be creative!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year my dear readers!
