Becky Berry and Diana Bader discuss the pitfalls and positives of commitments. 

  • You can’t make progress without commitment.
  • Commitment creates parameters that can increase productivity
  • FOMO (fear of missing out) is an epidemic in this country and it’s creating commitment phobia.
  • Committing to too many things makes it impossible to be committed to anything.
  • Over scheduling teaches children they are worthless unless they are always busy.
  • The things kids want to commit to don’t have to be the same things as their parents. This is how they explore.
  • Set a timeframe to stick to your commitments. If you’re in an experience that isn’t working out for you, make sure you’ve spent enough time doing it to give it a chance.
  • Interest vs Commitment: Interest is thought. Commitment is action.
  • Your integrity is built on how you handle your commitments.
  • When you let commitments slide, your integrity is tarnished and so is your self-esteem.


Our commitments define us.
