30 Days, 30 Essays – Commitment


Commitment is an idea I have been trying to understand more recently.

I have strayed on the journey to many causes more as a result of its simplicity than for my susceptibility to take it for granted.

I discovered commitment is more than a promise to do something and doing it. It may transcend physical resolve to psychological will.

Our world, only measures us in certain circumstances if we have been true to a cause or not. But living itself needs every ounce of commitment that we can muster to make a good out of it.

Do people honestly have issues with staying true to causes they voluntarily entered into? Are some people naturally unable to meet up with there own cause?

I thought I have an issue staying committed to some people and relationships, but I have discovered a grand revolt within me to carry out a stated goal till completion. It is not a biological mishap. It is just a lack of will to follow through regardless of if I like it or not.

I can’t stick to a simple regime for this blog, I can’t find a perfect time to complete my first novel, and I can’t, even, stay true to my favourite TV series’ schedules.

For some, the excuse to being true to their commitment is the volume of work involved carrying it out. I can whip up random excuses for my remiss too, but I won’t be justified.

I think the remedy to being committed to grander ideas is staying true to the smaller ones.

I know I would enjoy the pride of publishing a fiction when I can stay true to a regime of writing, which is why I created this blog.

I know I would keep my words to you if I could keep it to myself and figure out how to watch BOONDOCKS on SonyMax, even though I have seen it on DVD.

My conclusion is commitment has something to do with putting to mind and the strength of will to walk through the required work.

  1. Charles, good one. You said that you think the remedy to being committed to grander ideas is staying true to the smaller ones. I agree. I think that this is also the test of commitment. Before I accept someone’s commitment to my grand idea, I’d like to see their track record on their small ideas!
