Last year I made some personal changes that allowed me to see that commitment isn't as scary as I always thought it would be. I've always used the "I'm a Gemini" excuse when I decided that I was no longer interested in something I was once "passionate" about. I put "passionate" in quotes because in all honesty, I have never identified my true passion since I've never committed to anything long enough for something to evolve into passion.
After shedding 30 pounds, and running my first 5km, I came to realise that by taking baby steps, and just doing it, I can succeed. Instead of deciding what this year's bucket list will be, I am taking a different approach to life style changes. This year, I am choosing "commit" as my 2016 word, and hopefully by Dec 31, 2016, I will have found something I'm passionate about, as well as accomplish other "to-be-determined" goals I stumble across.
My first commitment of the year? Switching from free-lance to corporate junkie, and committing to be the best dang project manager I can possibly be. Commitment goal #1? Complete!
