Within the last week I read an article about commitment, or rather keeping a commitment. In sum, the author stated that it is easier to practice your craft or hone your skill, develop new habits and deepen your spiritual practice if you commit 100%. No creeping “well, just this once I won’t take my binoculars” or “I’ll get to the writing tomorrow.”
So I am committed to this experiment. If I write every day on this blog or on my work-in-progress Shared Legacy narrative (more on that later), no excuses, will the writer’s block melt? If I take my binoculars or camera everywhere I go, will I spend at least a few minutes mindfully every day? And if I write and deeply look at my world, will I find myself energized and engaged?
What have you, dear reader, decided to commit 100% to? What tricks did you develop to hold yourself accountable?
