New Year, Same Goal

Posted on


Wow, I honestly can’t believe that it’s officially been over a year since the first blog post was published on Teens Against Procrastination. This is a prime example of Tiffany’s First Law of Time, which states that time flies. In fact, I still remember making a post on New Year’s Day of 2017 about making “Resolutions”….

“This year, why don’t you make it one of your Resolutions to stop procrastinating? Sure, it will seem nearly impossible at first, but eventually it will make getting things done a total breeze.” 

– Tiffany Liu, January 2017.

And now, at the dawn of 2018, I’m pretty much saying the same thing:


Why am I simply repeating myself, you may ask?

Well here’s the thing: becoming less of a procrastinator is a process. And not just a process, but a long process. You’ll have periods of rapid improvement AND you’ll have detrimental relapses. But in the long run, you’ll get better.

For me, this process has taken much longer than one year. It might take even longer than two years!

So right now, I want you to ask yourself: did you FULLY meet all of the goals you set for yourself at the beginning of 2017? Have you become the prioritizer you’ve always dreamed of becoming?

If you have, CONGRATULATIONS! I seriously envy you….

If you haven’t, though, it might not be a bad idea to follow an unorthodox concept: “New Year, Same Goal.” For me, this just means another year of trying to reduce my procrastinating tendencies!

What about all of you? Let me know in the comment section!

  1. Procrastination is a human nature. As a self-proclaimed prioritizer, I procrastinate everyday. So procrastinate less has always been on and will always remain on my list of New Year resolutions.

  2. Haven’t checked TAP for a while. Guess I’ve been procrastinating. The holidays definitely made it difficult to procrastinate less. So it makes sense to reset my goal of procrastinating less every year on Jan. 1st.

  3. More and more people are recognizing the detrimental effects of smartphones and social media. I heard that there is a movement urging the tech giants like Apple and Facebook to do something to stop the pandemic of smartphone and social media addiction. TAP can be considered as a pioneer of this movement.
