Try this experiment: Put your head underwater and stay there for a long while.
What will you realize? That you can’t stay underwater for long? Why? It’s because you have a 100% commitment to breathing. No need for motivation. No need for justification. No making excuses.
You simply breathe.
That is commitment. Just doing what you are supposed to do. You don’t make excuses, or have a debate with yourself or your peers if the task is really necessary.
Whining is also terrible. You waste time whining and nothing good happens from it.
Worry is also another enemy of commitment. You waste precious energy worrying when you can simply do the task and be committed to it.
Commitment is therefore Action. As the Nike slogan says, Just Do It.
Final food for thought:
If someone tried to stop you from breathing, what will do? If you’re committed to an action or someone and then something comes along that threatens that commitment, what do you do?
Choose. Decide. Commit.
