I’m sure you’ve heard a variation of the oft quoted statistics about new year’s resolutions, something like: “Less than 10% follow through.” Those statistics form a sort of collective pessimism that excuses us from success. As it turns out they’re also BS.
According to a study by Dr. John Norcross from the University of Scranton, after two weeks 71% of people are still at and after six months nearly half, 46%, of have stuck to their guns. The study goes on to say that people who resolve to change at the New Year are 10 times more likely to succeed than folks that start at another time.
So what does that tell us? Now is the time: Adventure is calling, start today. If we dig a little deeper it also tells us that now is the most critical time. The first two weeks is critical to success, half of total failures happen by the second week of January.
Almost half of Americans make a new resolution. Not surprisingly 77% of those resolutions are weight control or self improvement related. Seven out of ten specifically named resolutions have to do with health improvement or being more adventurous.
“12% of new gym memberships come in January,” according to Darren Beattie at Quora.com, “The second week of January is almost always the busiest of the year” representing about a 33% increase in volume. “80% of the New Year’s Resolutions crowd drops off by the second week of February [6 weeks]."
So we know that it’s going to take two months to turn that resolution into a habit and that the most critical period it between weeks 2 and 6.
“Timothy Pychyl, a professor of psychology at Carleton University in Canada, says that resolutions are a form of "cultural procrastination," an effort to reinvent oneself. People make resolutions as a way of motivating themselves, he says. Pychyl argues that people aren't ready to change their habits, particularly bad habits, and that accounts for the high failure rate. Another reason, says Dr. Avya Sharma of the Canadian Obesity Network, is that people set unrealistic goals and expectations in their resolutions,” according to a Psychology Today article.
I believe it’s not as simple as all that. I think deep within the collective unconscious we recognize the yearend as a “return” and the New Year as a “call to adventure.” Think of that 2 week hump in your resolution to be your “refusing the call.”

After Today, every day brighter.
The winter soltice is the longest night of the year and by that definition tommorow begins the long climb through the vernal equinox towards the summer solstice - that is - every day from today is a little bit longer. Today is the annual hump day.
The solstice marks the official beginning of winter and the is oft celebrated throughout history. Saturnalia, the Roman celebration of Phonicean origin, is how we recieve our modern day Christmas in the western hemisphere.
The classic celebration of Solstice across the globe has been to light a bon-fire: To hold the long night at bay, to honor the year spent and to provide a beacon for weary travellors on their way towards longer days.
Fire has always been the sign of warmth, knowledge and adventure. Join us in carryin the fire by lighting your own bonfire tonight and future nights and comment or post a pic of those fires below.
Happy #soltice and #merrychristmas from @wanderlosttoday. #carrythefire with us at www.wanderlost.today
Upon the Danube wintery
strode I with Marcus Aureli
and we talked much of God's pastrami
and we walked til we strained our Quadi.
Long after the last spent Daric
I met a fellow named Aleric
together on horseback we cantered
pizza! pizza! the call; he antwortet.
Ragnar, he branched dividian
and lasted the last ophedian
I offered my hamr and shield
in hopes of a maiden to yield.
On a hill in the southern heat
Dr. Josh just couldn't be beat,
I gave a Penny for 'is thoughts
Bayonet he couldn't be boughts.
#Heroes wear beards! Read the Ode to #Novembeard on www.wanderlost.today
Comment and post your own awesome beard shots below!
The line of a poem by J.R.R. Tolkien is the theme of our Journey together.
Individually we are each the Hero of own Adventure on the Archetypal wheel. Collectively we are all a part of the same great Adventure: The Heroes Journey.
Wanderlost.today is dedicated to all those wanderers out there who, like me, are not quite comfortable in the nine-to-five, are not quite at home in the urbane status quo, those that struggle against the darker side of modernity.
Together, using this forum, we will Wander, hack, question, pioneer, raid, action and journey.
The ethos by which we guide our tribe is simple: Life is an Adventure, start Today. Our guidepost is the Monomyth of Joseph Campbell described as The Heroes Journey. The Hero Tenets are a set of values that allow us to dig deeper and cross the threshold beyond our ordinary world into the special world of adventure.
What you may expect from this site:
Join me in this great adventure and together we will cross the threshold.
