In Karl Fisch’s “thought for the day 5-30-09,” commitment needs to come first to be successful. “If organization requires success before commitment, it will never have either.” I have always had trouble committing to things I don’t like, such as school or chores, but when I do commit to them I find I am successful. Such as this year in high school I have been committed because I have something to strive for, if I don’t have good grades I can’t play basketball, and that’s just not an option for me. I make commitments to things I like very easily, such as basketball or interesting homework assignments. I had an assignment on my family tree in eighth grade and I committed to it and received a 95% on that project. I commit to basketball everyday and I am getting better everyday I play. Success doesn’t happen unless you want it to happen and you work for it, or commit to it.
