OK, so here’s where “the rubber meets the road”. A few weeks ago, I wrote about my Commitment. It was a real declaration. But how much am I really doing? How can I measure if I am meeting my commitments, and how can I make myself more accountable? It’s all about personal integrity. But it doesn’t hurt to have a public check-in!
I’m not just talking about things I “have to do”, but things I need to do. Things that will change my life for the better (and maybe other people’s too). So, I am going to share this list with you so I can demonstrate and practice my own commitment, and hopefully inspire you too.
Here it is, my daily commitment contract (this does not include all the other things I have to do in a given day like raising kids, business tasks, house/home, putting out fires, helping friends, building new frontiers).
My Daily Commitment Contract*
1. DAILY SPIRITUAL PRACTICE - Morning meditation and workout upon waking (about 6:30-7:00) before anything else where possible.
2. DAILY WRITING - Daily blog for 30 Days of Miracles; plus daily script-writing for film project over the next 30 nights… with a goal of completing a working draft this summer.
3. RELATIONSHIP - Daily time exploring our relationship dynamic, deepening and having more fun together, with at least 1/2 hour a night of uninterrupted time together sans TV and kids!
RULE: NO Facebook, Twitter, email, TV (distractions) until I have done my morning work FIRST. Same goes for the evening round. This is the hardest part!
“Commitment to Self/Core; commitment to Creative Expression; Commitment to Relationship. Then Everything Else!”
Well, that’s it folks. For now. I will be posting updates here and on Facebook (once my commitments are met, of course). Hold me accountable, ask me how it’s going! (Any good contract requires witnesses.) And that’s what we can do for each other.
So, what’s on your list?…
* This contract is subject to change without notice. Just kidding. However, we can be flexible
