Tip Tuesday

I posted a blog on May 4th about Commitment. I'm reposting today as your tip.

TIP:  Don't commit to something you can't fulfill.  It's better to say no up front to something rather than yes and not live up to that yes.

According to my friend Merriam, the definition of commitment is as follows:
1. an act of committing to a charge or trust: as
(1) : a consignment to a penal or mental institution
(2) : an act of referring a matter to a legislative committee

2. a : an agreement or pledge to do something in the future; especially: 
an engagement to assume a financial obligation at a future date
b : something pledged
c : the state or an instance of being obligated or emotionally impelled

Disclaimer: This post is not directed at anyone, just my generalizations.

I always think I can fix the world's problems. Or someone I know can.  I realize that's not the case in most things.

But please, I beg of you to read the definition above and do what it says. If you know anything about me, you know I'm not about doing anything halfway. If you make a commitment, stick to it.  

It only hurts the people you committed to when you don't follow through.
