What I Plan To Do This New Year

Stay committed. That’s it guys. No huge list of new year resolutions, no overwhelming number of goals and all that. Just two simple words, one challenging phrase –

Stay committed.

I think we can all agree that 2017 was quite a year. Not everything went the way we wanted it to. There may have been projects we failed and worse yet, there may be projects that we didn’t even start. Perhaps for the fear of not being able to continue. Or because of self doubts that engulfed us.

But here’s the catch our brain misses every single time – how would you know if this is for you if you do not try it? And no, nobody gets the results or figures things out 2 days into a project hear it well Nate, this is a reminder for ya)

Stick to it and see where it takes you. Commitment to your passion is the only secret to being productive on Saturday nights and Sunday mornings.

Let me share a quick insight from my past experiences:

Over the years, I have tried several different things that interested me. I was an inquisitive, curious child and that let me to start blogging at the age of 13 on HubPages. The entire idea about writing about what you love and earning money from it was amazing! That was the same year I discovered belly dancing. After a year or two, poetry enticed me and it was love at first reading.

But here’s the thing I will regret forever – I did not stay committed to any of those.

My relationship with blogosphere was on and off for many years. But the fact that I keep coming back each time (and with new wisdom) is the proof that God has put a gift in me and there’s something I need to learn from it.

So let’s cut to the chase. Why should you stick to your diet regimen or the new project or the new job or anything at all?

Because it’s worth it. It’s worth it when the results show, which it will. When you stay committed, you signal the Universe to send blessing and miracles and opportunities your way because you are actively telling the Universe – “No, I ain’t backing off. I’m doing this and I’ll be nailing this.”

It’s through staying committed you discipline yourself. It’s through commitment that you learn the balance of life and figure out if it’s really what you want to do. It’s figuring out why you want to do what you want to do.


Because one day, you will regret not following your calling. This year is going to be challenging one. But you don’t have to worry about a hundred things scribbled on your to-do lists. Yes, do make a list of those, but let your principal goal and strategy be to –

Stay committed.
