Commitment - Follow Through to Achieve Your Goals

You don’t want to back out when the going gets rough. Before you agree to do something, make sure you’re willing to invest what it will take to succeed – whether it’s as simple as meeting a friend for lunch or a bigger commitment like marriage and a new job.

What strategies do you use to stick with something after you’ve made the initial commitment?
"You need to make a commitment, and once you make it, then life will give you some answers." - Les Brown, American author 
"Anyone can dabble, but once you've made that commitment, your blood has that particular thing in it, and it's very hard for people to stop you.” - Bill Cosby, American actor
"There are only two options regarding commitment. You're either in or out. There's no such things as a life in-between." - Pat Riley, American professional basketball coach


  1. "Do. Or do not. There is no try." - Yoda

  2. Exactly, Jim! Thanks for the reminder of that great Yoda saying. FYI - I went to high school for 2 yrs with Mark Hamill and we were good friends WAY back then!

  3. Great Peter Drucker quote on the tweet too. I wrote a similar post about "Rubber Band Warriors" where I referenced the Yoda quote too.
