According to surveys, as many as 92 percent of New Year’s resolutions never come to fruition with as many as 80 percent of people giving up by the third week in January. “This Time I Mean It Day” has been established to give people a reminder to recommit to their goals and to celebrate their successes with other participants across the globe.
When asked why February 15th was chosen, Marcus responds, “I’ve never been a big fan of January first being the only date associated with self-improvement. You can change any time you want. That said, it’s six weeks from the start of the new year and most people have long-since forgotten about what they promised. Also, since it’s really about making a commitment, I figured what better day to make a commitment to your success than the day after the ultimate holiday about commitments, Valentine’s Day?”
Marcus explains the philosophy of the event as a way for fellow “recovering perfectionists”
The event is open to the public and Marcus says anyone who’s imperfect is invited to play along wherever they are. A free downloadable goal planner is available at www.ThisTimeIMeanItDay.com and Marcus says he’s looking to partner with other individuals, organizations, or sponsors who share a positive vision.
