In order for anything in life to work properly, there is one thing that must be present. That is commitment. Total and complete commitment. That's the magical key, the guarded secret, the Holy Grail if you will, of success.
Now I don't care if it's business, a lifestyle change, a personal relationship, or even just a passion or hobby...they all require a commitment to be successful. Anything done halfway is bound to fail. All things attempted without a measure of commitment are a waste of time.
Of course, all of this is just my opinion. That and a dollar will almost get you a cup of coffee now days. All I can go by is my personal experience and the experiences of my friends that believe as I do. I have found that I am most successful at those things to which I commit myself. Commitment goes by many names. Names like determination and strength of will.
However, commitment is a very personal thing. It has to be made by each individual. No one can make a commitment for you but you yourself. By the same token, you cannot commit to anything for anyone else. Each one of us must make our own commitments, we must be the captains of our own ships, the blazers of our own trails , the creators of our own destiny. Each of us must walk our own path, take responsibility for our own decisions, be aware of our own direction.
With this in mind, here is my simple suggestion. Don't try and work too many programs at once. Don't spread yourself so thin that you are unable to give a 100% to what ever you are working on. Pace yourself, pay proper attention to the details, work diligently but not desperately, stay within the guidelines of the program, and if you want to succeed then make the commitment.
Now...with all that said, let's get some fresh coffee!
