Do you ever sit there on a Sunday and think ‘Right, Tomorrow is when it all begins!’
Monday is the day you decide to make the change, whether it’s to start the diet, stop drinking, quit smoking, get organised, get fit or any of the other life changing things we promise ourselves we are going to do.
Oh, the things I tell myself I’ll do as soon as the new week starts.
But here’s the thing. Most of the time it doesn’t happen. Monday is a rubbish day to start anything. Most people don’t like Monday mornings, so you’re probably at a low ebb even before you start to make the change. You also see the whole week looming ahead of you and the thought of not being able to eat/drink/smoke/be lazy all week sounds really hard. If you really want to make a change, don’t put it off until Monday – start it today.
If you want to start the diet, throw all the junk food out NOW.
If you want to Stop drinking, poor all the alcohol away NOW.
If you want to quit Smoking, throw the cigarettes away NOW.
If you want to get Organised, grab a pile of whatever it is you need to organise and get on with it.
If you want to get fit, dust off that exercise DVD and get into your gym kit NOW.
What ever it is you want to start on Monday…
DO IT NOW.
Even if you just make a small start then you have already started the ball rolling for next week – you’re not starting from scratch, you’re continuing – and that’s always easier than starting something for the first time. It’s often said that the first step is the hardest, so why not get that out of the way and feel good about it!
