The beginning of a new year is a natural time to consider changing our current ways…thinking about what improvements might be good for us. We often decide to make a list of New Year’s resolutions. But this year why not be different and make a New Year’s commitment!
According to the dictionary a resolution is a “firm decision to do or not to do something”. A commitment is “the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity”. It’s that opportunity for dedication, devotion, allegiance, faithfulness.
The words are similar in definition, but commitment seems to take it a step above—asks for you to assist in the greater good of the world you live in.
In November at The Seventh Annual Green House Meeting and Celebration we asked our adopters “What is one commitment you would like to make to Lead with Heart and Soul in 2015?” You may remember “Leading with Heart & Soul” was the theme for our gathering. We asked them write it down on a large notecard, and during the conference other attendees could drop by the table and see what commitments had been made. As you can see, some were personal commitments to the Elders and others were commitments to continuing to improve the Green House model.
So when you ring in the New Year…consider a commitment instead of a resolution in 2015!
