Resolute: Start Planning Now

by ticketprinting on December 6, 2013

Every man should be born again on the first day of January. Start with a fresh page. ~Henry Ward Beecher

December is a lovely time to start thinking about New Year’s resolutions.

Wait, you’re thinking. It’s still December. Can I not celebrate Christmas before turning my thoughts to the New Year? Of course you could, but if you’re truly serious about making a change in 2014, why wouldn’t you start planning now? You wouldn’t wait until the day of the event to start planning a party, would you? The best events require months of forethought, and if you want to hit the ground running on 1 January (OK, 2 January if you’ll need some recovery time after New Year’s Eve) you should have a plan in place before ringing out the old.

According to the Mental Health Foundation, about 80% of us fail to follow through with our resolutions, which is about the success rate you’d expect for a big event you threw together the day of. How big are your goals? The more you wish you achieve, the more you’ll need to set up in advance.

For instance, if you resolution is to work out more, it makes sense for you to start researching how you’ll accomplish that now. If you’ll be jogging, you better have a pair of well-fitting, comfortable trainers in your closet before you begin. If you plan to join a gym, it’s best to figure out which one suits your needs so you can jump right into your new program at the beginning of the year, not just start looking for a perfect fit.

Those who resolve to eat healthier should broadcast their intentions. How will you start 2014 with a healthy diet if your house is full of cream biscuits and family-sized bags of crisps? Convince yourself you’ll succeed at your new diet by cleaning out the pantry and replacing junk food with fresh fruits and veg as soon as Boxing Day ends. If you’re dependent on fast food and prepackaged meals, now is an excellent time to figure out where you will learn how to cook. If you can’t afford classes, make sure your family know that cook books are on your wish list.

Want a new job? A clean house? A perfect holiday? Amplify your anticipation and ensure a greater degree of success by starting to prepare now. Update your CV, teach the kids to run the dishwasher, begin searching for the perfect travel plans. Start now to collect early on the promises of the new year.
