Here is what you need to do now to make real changes in your life.
First, stop thinking that all change has to happen at the beginning of something: the year, the month, the week. You can start something new any time you want. It seems cleaner to start on the first of the year, the first of the month or a Monday, but it doesn’t have to be that way. When you decide to make a change, start when you are ready. That can mean any day, including today. (You don’t even have to wait until tomorrow, for the beginning of a new day. Really. It’s okay.)
