Yesterday, I asked you to Reexamine Your Commitments and focused mostly on abandoning commitments that are not important to you. Today, I want you to make a commitment to yourself! Which of your priorities in life needs a boost, even if it’s just for today?
This Daily Shoring tip is similar to Add a Healthy Habit; the distinction is that I want you to select your commitment based on your life priorities. And, I want you to realistically plan when you’re going to honor this commitment. So often, people have the best intentions–for example, “I’ll exercise in the morning!” but the intentions are just not practical–you realize that adding in exercise in the morning means you’ll be getting up at 5:00 am and you’ll get only 5 hours sleep–not likely to happen! So you may have to re-prioritize other commitments to honor this commitment, and that requires a bit of thought and planning.
So, make one commitment to yourself for today (or tomorrow) and figure out how you need to prioritize to honor this commitment. Keep the commitment simple if you’re not up for a challenge–it’s important that you keep your commitment to yourself.
If you’re up for a challenge, make a commitment to yourself for the next week or month, and adjust your other commitments accordingly.
