I often say the only thing I’ve ever committed to is my wife.

That’s not true.

I’ve also committed to my health. I’ve committed to running and training and taking care of my mind and body. I’ve committed to taking care of myself and maintaining myself every single day.

I’ve also committed to reading and writing. I read and write every single day.

But I don’t like commitment. I’m very hesitant to commit to anything. Commitment is hard. Commitment is work.

When I commit to something, I fully commit and put my heart and soul into it. I give it everything I have and try follow through.

I’ve committed to enough of the wrong things to know it’s hard to commit and stay committed to something we don’t like and don’t enjoy.

I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve broken commitments and not followed through. But beware. Some things appear shiny from the outside. When we get to the inside we realize they’re not as shiny.

Find what makes you happy. Do what makes you happy. When you do, you’ll want to commit and committing won’t feel like work.
