Are you having a groundhog day? I’m sure you remember the movie.  Every day was a repeat of the day before.  Maybe you’re late every day, or you procrastinate on the same tasks day after day, such as instead of making your own coffee every morning, you purchase it.  Maybe you vow to be healthier, but you skip your workout every time. You want to change, but you feel trapped by your habits and shortcomings.

It is time for a new day. You can beat this cycle of failure! Your first step is to identify the behavior you want to change. Discover the problem and write it down.  Determine what steps you must take to correct it and reach your goals. Once you have written down what you need to do, share your goal with a friend who will hold you accountable. Never try to make these changes alone. Enlisting the help of someone else can significantly increase your chances of success. Next, evaluate your performance every evening, taking action as necessary. If you notice a problem in your original plan, alter it so that you can meet your goal. Set up rewards for accomplishments and penalties for lack of progress. You don’t have to remain trapped by your shortcomings. Make today a new day!

You have a choice, and the choice is yours.
