Today I made an interesting discovery about myself while talking with my dad.  I finally realized that as important of a value as commitments are in my life, there is one time when I make a commitment that I am going to work at not following through on:  Whenever I commit myself to being a jerk, I’m going to give myself permission to not follow through on such a useless thing. I’d rather spend time committing to things that matter, and not on things that perpetuate getting in the way of myself – JCT (inspired by a conversation with dad)
