Small promises (to yourself)

Make a small promise (to yourself). Make a small promise to yourself and be on time. Continue to show up for yourself to keep that small promise on time. Fulfill this small promise again and again. Keeping a short-term promise will build your confidence and capabilities for more significant commitments in the long run. The long run is made up of several short runs.

For example, my small promise is to show up here every day for a year to write these small ditties. To show up daily with my personal writing for a professional cause. I believe if I persist in keeping this small promise, it’ll inform me about who I am supposed to serve and what my message will be, and it will earn the trust of contractors who are curious about hiring me.

What small promise are you keeping to yourself, and why does it matter?
