- Start with projects that should be easy to commit to. Don’t start with projects of 3-6 months if you don’t have a strong track-record of one-month successes behind you.
- Start becoming more sensitive about what you commit to. Be cautious about overcommitting.
- If you need future flexibility, bake it into your initial commitment, don’t try to wiggle it in later.
- Raise the bar on what counts as a valid excuse. View commitment as a long-term skill-building project.
