It’s December 11th today. Three Fridays left in 2020: today, the 18th, and Christmas Day.
After that, the next Friday is the first day of the New Year.
Of course New Year’s Day, other than often being a day on which we wake up tired, overfed, and/or hung over, is also perhaps the most common day on which we begin new diets.
Whether that be because ‘it was too difficult to start before because of the holidays’, or because ‘there was a good sale on this product or program’, or because of the association of the new calendar year with a fresh start, or all of the above.
The truth of the matter is, New Year’s Day is just as good or bad a day as any to start a new diet.
What really matters, what really determines whether it’s going to work for you or not, is why you are doing it.
Your particular reason why is what underlies everything else that you’ll do after New Year’s Day; it determines your level of commitment.
So then, if you agree with me so far, success on any program has very little to do with the date on the calendar.
It just so happens that I started a new program on October 16th, and when New Year’s Eve rolls around, I’ll be celebrating it’s completion.
I have learned a ton, reset my metabolism, and dramatically improved the state of my body and mind.
Over the next three Fridays, I’ll share more about it with you.
Because even though a new beginning has nothing to do with the date on the calendar, the practical truth is that it is difficult to start a new diet during the holidays.
So if you’re interested, simply read my next three posts, and then you can decide after you celebrate your New Year’s Eve.
