Why wait till January to turn things around?
Have you seen that episode of Seinfeld where George decides to “really do something” with his three months of summertime? He vows to read a book from beginning to end (in that order) and to learn to play Frisbee golf. Sure, if you recall, George wasn’t successful, nor were his goals that lofty, but maybe he had the right idea. You could actually proclaim this summer to be your very own “summer of George” too. Summer is the perfect time to set goals and to do your best to conquer them.
In January, there’s something special about the ball dropping in Times Square, about all the confetti, about old acquaintance being forgotten that makes you feel like you can make a clean break with the parts of your life you’re not crazy about and start anew. According to the Journal of Clinical Psychology, about 50 percent of the population makes resolutions each New Year.
The other half, I’m guessing, used to. Chances are, several months ago you made a New Year’s resolution or two. But, most likely, as summer approaches, you haven’t earned those washboard abs, finished writing that novel or finally quit that annoying habit—at least I haven’t. Not so surprisingly, The New York Times has reported that by July most people have broken their resolutions.
Life gets in the way of our good intentions and we sometimes abandon them all too quickly.
I know it probably sounds too idealistic, but as we approach 94 days of summer, what if you gave that resolution, whatever it was, a second try? Or what if you made a new one?
