Can we be honest? New Year’s Resolutions just don’t work. It’s not that they can’t but the problem is most people:
Don’t really want to make resolutions but feel they “should” or…
Make resolutions that don’t mean something to them or…
Make goals that are too large or…
Don’t have the accountability or support necessary to make the change or…
Make them too vague or…
Don’t plan them out
That’s what “This Time I Mean It Day” is all about.
FAQs about the holiday
What is “This Time I Mean It Day?”
It’s a day to recommit to something that’s important to you. You can use the date as a “date certain” by which you will achieve a goal (or “resolution”) or the starting date to begin a resolution (or restart it).
When is it?
February 15 of each year.
Why was that date chosen?
For a couple of reasons, first of all it’s six weeks after the beginning of the year so the “artificial” pressure for goal setting has lapsed and most people who set a New Year’s resolution have long since given it up. The other reason is there’s kind of “poetry” to making a commitment the day after a holiday that’s dedicated to long-term commitments (Valentines Day).
What are we expected to do on “This Time I Mean It Day?”
Celebrate your successes. But most of what you do can be done in advance by visiting the event page for the holiday and reading what others are doing, making supportive comments, and even making some posts.
What kind of posts?
The most popular thing to do is post what you plan to do. Of course, you can also provide positive comments to others who are making changes, or ask for help.
Is there anything else I can do?
Sure. Studies show that people do better when supported so you can ask others to get involved.
Is there anything that will help me if I want to get involved?
