Seth Godin’s daily blog is one of the few emails I’ve kept subscribed to throughout the years because his content is always pertinent to our times and extremely valuable.
In a post from last week, Seth struck a chord with the statement: “You don’t need a new plan for next year. You need a commitment.”

And then, make sure that you’re just as committed to changing course and being flexible to where the path takes you vs. feeling as if you need to control each step because it’s part of your
We all know at a certain level that planning has value – but knowing exactly how things will un-fold is impossible.
More importantly, a plan is valuable only after you’ve committed to achieving the goal.
Therefore the question really is: How do you know what it is that you’re committed to? And how do you know if you’re really committed to the “right things”? The things that are aligned with your deepest values and who you really are and are meant to become?
The Truth is: our commitments show through our actions. We commit to our choices by what we do, not what we say. And even though you may say that you want something to happen, your
commitment will show through the actions you take or the actions that you don’t take.
It’s a simple concept to cognize, but not an easy concept to understand.
