Use the Fresh Start Effect to Achieve Positive Change

It’s 2020!! Wow, we have now entered a new decade!

Around the world, people usually start each new year by setting goals and making positive changes.

But once New Years goals have been made, it’s still possible to harness the energy of a resolution and create what’s known as the Fresh Start Effect.

The reason that a new year can be such a great time to make changes is that it provides a clear ‘temporal landmark’. These landmarks give us an opportunity to step back, survey our lives and figure out what things we’d like to tweak.

But you don’t have to rely on the New Year to create your resolutions, you can create your own temporal landmark to set resolutions. It could be the new financial year, a birthday, a work anniversary, the start of a new season, daylight saving or a holiday. Whatever you choose, be clear on what the date means to you.

Before you reach your landmark date, make sure that you understand what you’re trying to achieve, and create goals that are more likely to succeed.

Making changes or starting something new is easier with these techniques:

  • Making a public commitment - Announce your new goal on social media. If your friends and family get behind your goal, you’re more likely to be accountable and more likely to succeed.
  • Join a group - If you want to pick up a sport, start a new hobby or give something up, consider joining a group. Again, this is a great way to create accountability- if you’re worried about letting down other people, you’re more likely to commit or show up!
  • Be specific - When you’re setting goals, be exact. If you want to go to the gym more often, know what this means in practice. For example, set your goal with dates and times in mind and put them into your diary.
