Every year human beings make "resolutions" for the new year, things that they might want to change or do better in the upcoming year. What a fun idea, set a goal to achieve in the new year.

While I think that "resolutions" are fun, why do we need to wait?

I'll use myself as an example. A few years ago I realized I needed to lose weight. I knew it was important for my health. What I didn't do was wait to start losing the weight. I started immediately and dropped nearly a hundred pounds.

Other resolutions people often set are quitting smoking, working out, being more patient and the list goes on. Again, if a "resolution" is on your mind and it can better your physical health, mental health or make you a better person, why wait?

Resolutions are a great idea, start them now, don't procrastinate. Maybe your "resolution" could be to not procrastinate.
