Commitment device

How do you keep your motivational fire going? How do you keep calm in the heat of a tempting moment? Photo: Yesterday, prepping for last night’s temperature dip into the low 60’s.

A commitment device allows your cool-headed decisions to not get destroyed by the temptation of your hot-headed desire for pleasure or pain avoidance.

Couple commitment devices i use:

  1. Being an example not a warning
  2. Consistently using compelling deadlines
  3. The long way is the shortcut
  4. Loving risk more than comfort

Excuses are even more attractive when the pressure is high

Our excuses reasons to justify just going through the motions are even more attractive when the pressure is on.

Take the December holidays. Crazy. Stressful.

Are we completely unaware? Is it predictable? Does our positive attitude make seasonal exceptions to not be so positive?

It’s the paradox of the most joyful Holiday for many Americans.

Dear Readers

Dear readers, something we can all agree on

Rising Sun Motor Inn and Cabins Cabin

 

(photo: Simple living helps us manage our responsibilities. Our Cabin at Rising Sun Motor Inn, GNP)

The quality of our work is dependent on many things.

We have all experienced this. And continue to experience this. Even as we read this.

Same with our attitude.

Sometimes we wish we had done a better job yesterday.

Go easy on yourself.

And don’t let the notion of not producing something amazing stop you from producing.

Writing everyday is a metaphor for this.

Focus on our attitude everyday. All day.

PS. Taking a break from Glacier National Park today.
