Grind + Commitments

There are those times in between moments of great insight and transformation where you still have a lot of work to do.

And that’s where I am. I’m moving forward, and I’m keeping everything going, but there’s no great struggle. It’s just… moving.

And because there’s no big moments of victory, just a lot in between, it ends up feeling a bit flat.

This is where commitments help.

Commitments take your work and turn every action into a small victory. You may not have gotten your Big Goal, but you did the thing you said you were going to do.

You wrote 500 words. You posted something. You made 5 calls. You scheduled some sales appointments.

You turned your big dreams into actual boring everyday actions that you can check off a list, so that even though your dreams are far away, you have something you can count as a win every day.

There’s still a danger that what you commit to doing has nothing to do with getting where you want to go, but the core engine of “Doing something” needs to be running either way, and if you really want something, you will keep thinking of ways to get there faster.
