National Make Up Your Mind Day: Dec. 31

The end of the year is almost upon us. For many, it offers a chance to look back and reflect on what we planned for the previous year and compare our accomplishments to our list of resolutions. It also opens the topic of resolutions for the New Year and whether we're going to roll over those goals (start my own hobby farm), modify our goals (see the midnight showing of "Breaking Dawn: Part 1"), or drop them entirely (a daily jog?!). For some, it means beginning a list for the first time or dropping the idea entirely.

Whatever your plan, there is no better time to do this than on National Make Up Your Mind Day. If the dropping ball and the impeding "3, 2, 1, Happy New Year!" moment isn’t motivation enough, this national holiday should push you to get it done. Consider it your dress rehearsal before the big play. While the banks don't recognize this as an excuse to close for the day, it is all the rage in the e-card world. So, why not take this opportunity to finally make up your mind already, and spruce up your resume, or paint that room bright purple, or take a walk, or enroll in a college course? You're almost guaranteed to feel more organized and decisive on January 1 if you spend the day before observing a procrastinator's nightmare of a holiday. 

Coming from a procrastinator and a Gemini, I say, make up your mind. Do it. Having a goal to improve your current circumstances or better yourself is never a bad idea. But while you are at it, make up your mind that you will not beat yourself up if you don't do exactly everything on your list. Or, decide that this year you will not make any resolutions. Instead, make plans to make no plans so you will be sure to not fail at keeping your resolutions. Either way, the time is now. 

As for me, I'm using this day as an opportunity to make a huge list of dream goals, just so I can look back at the end of next year and laugh at what I thought was a priority as a younger me. And it also shows me that I can accomplish something if I truly want it badly enough. 

So, what are you waiting for?
