It is Too Late to Start Early

So you might as well start now.

Happy New Year!

Last week (that Yuletide week between Christmas and the new year) I often heard people talk about a few new year plans and goals that they would start in the new year. Because, after all, right now we’re still on holiday.

I had some similar thoughts and ideas about 2019. But I had another thought as well: why not start right now?

If I can get started on a goal or path right now, even if it has to be slow, it will be much easier to get the train moving faster when the new year finally arrives. Perhaps I’ll have a higher chance of sticking with it, too.

One of my 2019 goals will be to do 50000 push-ups. I decided to do this while we were visiting Québec City over the holidays. That’s when it hit me… why wait? Sure, the push-ups I was doing in 2018 will not count for 2019 push-ups. Who cares?

The goal isn’t about doing 50000 push-ups. The goal is to incorporate more push-ups in my life.

Stop waiting for those artificial start and due dates. Get started now.

  1. This is great advice. Reminds me of an old proverb: “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” I started weight training a few weeks ago instead of waiting until 2019, and now I have a solid base to build on!
