Earlier today, our VP came into the office and asked us to recommit to our careers for 2016. I stood there thinking about how important that word can be: Recommit. I don’t hear it used often, but when someone pulls it out, they mean business.
Thankfully, I already had started the recommit process in all aspects of my life, so I had no trouble swallowing what she was asking of each of us. There’s always room for improvement and that includes in my work life.
So I’ve recommitted to doing my job more effectively and efficiently. I’ve recommitted to mom-ing my Marine less and listening more. I’ve recommitted to being a good friend to anyone who seems to need one. I’ve recommitted to working on my own health and fitness. With lots of people around me doing the same thing, this one is definitely doable. I’ve recommitted to spending more quality time with my husband. Tonight, I didn’t pick up the phone once to check Facebook or look at anything else while we were eating together. This may not sound like much, but my phone may as well be glued to my hand for as much as I use it. This was a huge accomplishment.
I’ve recommitted to me. I need to keep me as a high priority in my life, so I can be at my very best. Sounds like a good plan to me.
