One of the best ways to kick-off the New Year is by starting a 30-day trial of a new daily habit or activity. Instead of creating a New Yearâ€™s Resolution that you probably wonâ€™t stick to, itâ€™s better just commit to a short-term change. Make a January resolution only. If it doesnâ€™t work out, youâ€™re completely free to abandon it on January 31st, but for the first 30 days, use every ounce of resolve and self-discipline you can gather to stick to it, whatever it takes. At the end of the 30 days, youâ€™ll be in a great position to decide whether you want to commit to a lasting change, having 30 days of success behind you.
People whoâ€™ve use the 30-day trial method to form positive new habits and break bad habits. For example: quitting smoking, learning to invest, getting out of debt, starting a new exercise program, waking up early, going to bed early, giving up soda, quitting coffee and lots moreâ€¦ Have you decided what 30-day trail you’re going to commit too for 2008. Let’s hear about it in the comments.
