Commitment

“It is our experience that, 90% of the time, what passes for commitment is compliance.” — Peter Senge

“The antidote to self-interest is to connect and to find cause. To commit to something outside of ourselves. To be part of creating something we care about so we can endure the sacrifice, risk and adventure that commitment entails.” — Peter Block

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: That the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issue from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has a genius, power and magic in it.” — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“Intensity coupled with commitment is magnetic.” — Warren Bennis

“I just want to leave a committed life behind.” — Rev. Dr Martin Luther King
