Why wait until January to resolve to make a change?
- “I find that waiting until an arbitrary time to start achieving my goals is the best way to do it.”
- “I want everything to be perfect before I start.”
- “The people with the most success wait until January 1 before making their resolutions. I’ll just follow the crowd because it works so well.”
Have you ever uttered those words or something similar? Has it really helped? A friend has challenged a group of us to start working toward our goals today – not waiting for the perfect moment or the perfect setting or anything dealing with perfection.
You’re going to fall. You’re going to want to quit. You might even think your goal is too high or too impossible. If it were easy, (come on, say it with me), everyone would do it.
So I’ve written my goals. I’ll figure out the steps along the way. I might have to make a few detours but I’ll keep my sight focused on the finish line. Along the way, I’ll draw on my training from the last 55+ years as a human and 10 years as a student of the Disney Institute. You want to be the best? Then why not learn from the best?
