I’m still making committments to myself, but trying to really limit them and concentrate on following through. Even with dozens of things I’d love to do, I’m limiting my deepest commitments.
Something I learned from my daughter. If you tell her you’re going to do something, she’ll NEVER let you forget, and every failure is a broken promise. So now I only tell her I will do something or we’ll do something if I know I can keep that promise. I’ll still tell her lot’s of things that I hope we’ll be able to do, and let her know why it’s not a guarantee, but always follow through on the promises.
So now I’m trying to work the same with myself. Lot’s of things I Hope to do, and will if I can, but promises, those are fewer and much more dear. Doing a much better job with these.
