Commitment Journal what's this?

I’ve made progress - but haven’t hit “10”. Reaching out and getting “yes”es is one thing, turning these into firm strands is another.

That said - I think the concept and practice of strengthening the rope is a journey and one that requires tending. I have a call tomorrow with one of my besties - to develop this further. I have others in the works.

Like any “habit”, building a network, my rope, will either happen with intention, or it will slide onto the scrapheap of failed personal development projects :(

I have made new or reconnected with 2-3 peers. I think 5 strands is a reasonable number for me - since they take time to nurture.

On home stretch. I’m finding there it a little harder than I expected to close out 10. What I’ve been doing instead is expanding my circle - while they might not be strands - yet - they have the potential and enrich my world.

This exercise has provided an opportunity to reflect on the many connections that already exist, but that can use some TLC to develop further. While my HS buddies haven’t come through, I’ve connected with 3 other colleagues/friends that have agreed to have regular calls. Waiting on other replies likely delayed due to the holidays....

Got it - the rope is coming along. I’ll make another commitment around writing and one around daily planning. I’m learning to be more proactive with my daily plan - and know it will be the most challenging one to master!

We can still track here and you can write a check. :)

I also purchased Flowstate for my iPad. Trialed with 5 minutes of randomness - it’s challenging! Thanks for the tip.

Yeah - I already tried to sign up. Of course it won’t accept my credit card....
