On our regular Monday General Meeting, Eliza filled the room with a discussion about commitment. As defined, it is a pledge or a bind dedicated to something or someone. Based on a spiritual aspect more importantly Psalm 37:5 says: Commit everything you do to the LORD. Trust him, and He will help you.
Since there are no half-hearted commitments we believe that it starts with the heart. If your heart isn’t in the right place it would be difficult to see all your words put into action and of course for you to persevere or endure once the going gets tough.
However, getting your heart to commit isn’t easy. It must first understand why. To reevaluate we pondered once again for the purpose of the company and of course why we go to work every day. Losing perspective on the fact that it’s not all about money will drive all the passion away.
We all know the fable about the hen and the pig:
A hen and a pig were talking in the barnyard one day. The hen was so proud and talking on and on about how glad she was that she and the pig can grant the wish of the farmer and his family to have ham and eggs for their breakfast. The pig, however, was less enthusiastic about it. He replied, “That’s easy for you to say. For you it’s just a contribution. For me it’s a total commitment.”
For those who don’t understand the purpose why this company was built it is so hard to commit to the mission, vision and company policies. Every extended effort will just bring about a heavy heart. You have to be involved in what you are doing but dedication is a choice. All I know is, if you don’t feel you should commit yourself because you don’t want to take a risk well then…you are just plain chicken! No pun intended ;p LOL!
