The most desired changes

The so-called 'I can't wait!' change refers to the situation when you are excited about taking on a new job, getting married and all these big changes that you decide to undergo throughout your life.

It does not only require enthusiasm, but also a big amount of realism and sacrifice, as you are mainly getting out of your comfort zone.

The "I'll start tomorrow" trap

When there is a new habit to form or a new project to work on, the human tendency is to say, "I'll start tomorrow", or "I'll start on Monday."

We get a payoff when we delay important actions and promise that we will do it at some perfect time in the near future.

The Fresh Start Effect

When we want to change ourselves anew, we often set a date on when to start changing our behaviors or our habits. This is the concept of having a "fresh start".

The effect of the "fresh start" is that we're able to overlook our past mistakes and imperfections of our daily lives and have new beginnings. We are then more likely to take action towards our goals.
