According to Robert J. Ringer
Above all, don’t allow yourself to be lulled into the New Year’s Resolution Syndrome, rationalizing away each wasted day by thinking, “I’m going to work on improving my efficiency starting the first of the year,” or, “I’m going to start making ten sales calls a day beginning next month,” or, “I’m going to start working on that project as soon as I get everything else under control.” The New Year’s Resolution Syndrome […] is the antithesis of living in the present, and leads only to a life of endless procrastination.
The time to start becoming efficient is today. The time to make a sales call is today. The time to start working on a project is today. And the time to start picking up the pieces and begin over again is today. Develop the habit of living in the present. The best day really is today, so get started now, no matter what your problems are and no matter how long you’ve already procrastinated.
