Why Each Of Us Should Commit To Something
Meyer Kimera Apr 11, 2021
Often, we quickly get distracted by things not because we genuinely understand and like them, but we get quick and instant gratifications out of them. When we learn to love and understand and have genuine compassion, then we can truly understand how to love and commit ourselves to suitable substances.
For a moment, consider yourself a river and think about salt as the distractions you constantly face. If you poured too much salt into a cup of water, the water becomes undrinkable. On the other end, if you poured salt into a river, others can still draw the water to cook, wash, and drink.
The river is immense and has the capacity to receive, embrace, and transform. When we let in too many distractions, our understanding and compassion are limited, and we suffer for that. But when we commit to something for our minds and knowledge to expand, these same things don't make us suffer anymore. We gain a lot of understanding and compassion and grow the capacity to embrace and transform. So the big question is; how do we help our minds to grow? My humble answer and opinion are to COMMIT TO SOMETHING.
When we commit, we can learn the art of nourishing the required skills that leads to mastery. Everything needs food to live, even grow. If we don't know how to nurture our talents, they wither. When we feed and support our skills, we are nourishing our abilities. That's why committing means learning the art of raising our ability to do something very well that ultimately adds value to our collective society.
In software development, committing code to a source repository is one of the Best Practice Standards performed by software engineers. This procedure allows developers and non-developers to version and track a software program's changes during its life cycle, including the ability to revert to a previous version. Think about the benefits. It all starts with committing code. Committing to something is a good thing, and we should all do it.
