When you have an important business meeting coming up, you put it on your calendar, right?
Why? Because putting things on your calendar prevents double-booked or forgotten plans.
What about your family? Are commitments made to your partner or kids less important than to your coworkers?
What about your commitments to yourself – your health, your education, your career development, etc.
Are you sabotaging your personal life because you subconsciously value your family — or yourself — as not deserving of the same commitment and undivided focus as you do your job?
If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well, which means making and keeping commitments.
If it’s not on your calendar, it’s not in your heart.
