Some of us like to launch self-improvement regimens on significant dates. And one of the classics is coming right up.
The anniversary of the first moon landing in 1969 is this Wednesday. And what better day to begin your drive to lose 10 pounds, stand up to your boss or start going to bed earlier?
"If they can put a man on the moon, then I ought to be able to lay off the chili cheese fries."
But maybe there's no need to wait until Wednesday. Tomorrow, Saturday, is the anniversary of the actual launch of Apollo 11 from Florida. Perhaps that's really the perfect day to light this candle, as they say.
Of course, this approach flies in the face of everything experts on change have to say about how real behavior modification actually takes place. But good luck anyway.
