Commitment In Everything

A new year has arrived. Most people were filled with enthusiasm and excitement to kickstart their journey, improve themselves, and reach their goals which perhaps have been sitting there for the past few years.

>Never as easy as it seems

Setting up targets at the beginning is easy and the first few days of work might not be much, but when it comes to repetition and exhausting routines needed to reach said goals, that's when people start losing interest and ended up stopping altogether.

It might not be wise to judge someone's commitment based on an incident or a specific event, but at the very least we know that it is an aspect that can help us prepare on how to deal with certain people whether it be in a job, project, relationship, etc.

Most might say that they have it, yet as time passes we'll see that it only exists in a small number of people. And as the wise man used to say, action speaks louder than words.

Perhaps some of us might be fed up with writing at one point in the past year. We're busy enough with other things that needed our focus and attention, and writing seems to be in the last order of priority in our lives. We might take a short break and let off some steam in the meantime, but in the end, we start writing again and get back to our daily routines.

Certainly, it's not an easy feat to keep going despite the harsh circumstances that each and every one of us might be having, yet here we are still writing our minds and hearts out along with whatever craziness is happening around the world. I don't think that's possible without a commitment, either to improve ourselves, to keep earning, or to reach whatever goals we have in mind.

>Cases of commitments

From relationships, careers, projects and so many other things in life, commitment lets us decide on how much can we trust an individual, group, or business.

For example, if you are looking to hire someone as a part of your newly started company, surely you’ll think twice before hiring someone whose CV shows that they have hopped on different companies in a short amount of time as it might indicate that the person doesn’t have enough commitment on their past jobs and that they might do the same thing (leave for another company soon after recruitment) if you hired them. At least that is what my seniors told me after they got hired after graduation.

Another example of the importance of commitment in the professional space and especially crypto-related would be the roadmap and transparency of a certain token. After reading the whitepaper and digging around for information about a project, one of the things most people would do is to find the roadmap of said token and find out more about the developer (in case they are doxxed). It’s not strange that people would be more willing to invest in a project developed by well-known professionals in the crypto space as there would be less chance that the project will be abandoned or that the developer will run away with funds raised. And in the case that the project has successfully completed milestones that have been previously stated in their roadmap, it would show that the developers have a good commitment to the project and people more be willing to invest or buy into the project.

Besides career and investment, commitment is also one of the most important things in a relationship. From how you’re planning to handle finances, whether you’re looking to have children or not, where you want to live, to how much effort and time can you give to your relationship, a huge commitment is needed to have a successful, harmonious, and long-lasting relationship.

In the case of marriage, the commitment would be needed more than ever as you’ll be spending most of your time and resources with your partner in the foreseeable future. And as how a lot of wedding vows stated, ‘through thick and thin, through tears of pain and tears of joy together’, without any commitment, a relationship would not hold up in tough situations.

>Start with the small things and prioritize

That being said, I've struggled a few times to stay committed to my personal target in the past, the most recent one related to writing. At that time, my head was filled with negative thoughts and was just too tired so I decided to take a long break from writing. Looking back now, I think that it was the right decision.

As I've mentioned at the beginning of this article, I find writing to be in the last order of priority in my schedule at that time, and even though it'd be disappointing that I'd fail one of my targets, I know that I have a bigger priority and commitment to my parents and myself in achieving the best possible outcome for my academics.

I started committing more time and effort to reach the small milestones, like finishing all my projects and tasks (even the part of others) earlier than expected so I can study in advance, and also still have some time to do house chores.

By organizing my priority, I find myself performing better and being able to keep my commitment to the bigger picture, so I'll take that as a win. Starting with a small to-do list and keeping tabs on my physical and mental health, things work out pretty well in the end.

Just as the proverb says "if you wanted to move a mountain start moving the rocks besides it. Starting is the most hard and important thing to finish the job

Plans, dreams, goals will remain that unless we commit to doing what it takes to achieve them.
