Arbitrariness

A change can be made at any time

There is still a culture around New Year for us to make resolutions about changes we would like to make in the coming 12 months. It could be starting something, stopping something else or moderating our behaviour in some way. Taking time to reflect is useful and healthy but setting intentions on an arbitrary date because we’re expected to inevitably leads to disappointment — how many resolutions can we honestly say we’ve stuck to by Jan 10th? Or Jun 10th? Or Dec 31st?

Forming habits is hard and requires commitment. Better to do that when we’re ready than when we’re not.

(I note the irony of restarting this blog on Jan 1st…)
