Set, Stick, Check, Retune.
Do you make commitments when it comes to blogging?
If you do not blog, take X. No don’t leave, take X.
And how is that working out for you? Do you regularly look if your blog is getting better because of your commitments? It might be working out great for you, but are you sure? Do you remember your goals? Or you’re just keeping your commitments?
Commitments are a great help, but make sure you keep in control.
Let me explain this: You are the boss, not your commitments
Only stick with your commitments if they keep their part of the deal. You’r not the deal breaker. Commitments that do not deliver on their promise, should be retuned. Sometimes, just drop them.
Commitments are dynamic in nature, but we tend to view them as set in stone, making it hard to keep them in tune with the goals we set our commitments on. See your commitments as a guitar string. You have to tune them to get the best sound. By playing the guitar, by acting on your commitments, they slowly get out of tune.
Below are the 4 little steps on how you retune your commitments so they keep working for you:
- Set goals and make the commitments that help you to reach those goals
- Stick with your commitments. Take the actions to reach your goals
- Check commitments. Look if they still help you reaching your goals and thy are not working against you
- Retune commitments back to the goals you want to achieve
Just remember: Set, Stick, Check, Retune. Set and Stick is not enough.
When you sing it as a song, it will stick and you keep the retune.
Are you open for sharing a retune on your blogging commitments?
