The thing about commitment

Commitment is a must. Once you state that you will blog daily, create a campaign or help a friend, breaking the engagement breaks the trust you’ve built by committing in the first place.

When someone sets the agenda, it might just be worth breaking that trust. It’s less damaging than continuing. But for all the times you made the choice, it is only by committing that will you ever be able to make a difference.

Sure a new practice isn’t always easy. The temptation to quit is often stronger than the drive to continue. Doing something that has the chance of being worth noticing never comes willy nilly. It comes from engaging and pushing through the temptations.

Determine what matters to you, commit to it and push through the temptation to stop.
