What You Don't Like

It's rare that I sign on to a project that I truly don't like, but that's just what I did recently. I hope to honor my commitment, however, I wonder if I will be able to do that since I've met with a lot of failure in that regard. It's good to not succeed now and then though it's not easy. Not succeeding helps you to appreciate those times you do succeed and the times you are doing work that you truly like and feel success with.

I met with a friend recently who experienced a similar downturn. This friend has experienced tremendous success, but recently got involved with something that was less successful. It was interesting to hear how he rerouted his path to change his commitment somewhat in order to finish the task.

I'll put my commitment in a "box" which means I'll structure the time, energy, and effort I give it and then let it take its course. Onward.
