“Freedom Through Commitment” – Commit to what you truly care about in life and let “everything else” fall off (or at least don’t emotionally/mentally/physically invest yourself as much) and you’ll see success and live a better life.  Yes, easier said that done, but a good message to remind yourself.   Below is a quote from the book that I referenced on where the message came from…

  “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life”

“Commitment gives you freedom because you’re no longer distracted by the unimportant and frivolous. Commitment gives you freedom because it hones your attention and focus, directing them toward what is most efficient at making you healthy and happy. Commitment makes decision-making easier and removes any fear of missing out; knowing that what you already have is good enough, why would you ever stress about chasing more, more, more again? Commitment allows you to focus intently on a few highly important goals and achieve a greater degree of success than you otherwise would.”
