I’ve been thinking a lot about commitment lately. My commitment to write a novel this month is one of the most challenging I’ve made in a long time. Although I’ve fallen behind on word count recently, I am fully committed to getting back on track and completing the novel. Commitment plays a major role in our daily lives, whether in maintaining a relationship, getting a degree, sticking with a job or completing a piece of writing. Unfortunately, much of the time, good intentions fall by the wayside and what we thought we were committed to slows down to a crawl or occasionally a screeching halt. We’ve all had instances where we’ve committed to something and then not followed through. So how do we revitalize our commitment to something we genuinely want to be, do or have when our current level of commitment isn’t getting us the results we want?
