Promises and Hopes

By Bernadette Kathryn, LMT, IHLC


Unless commitment is made,

there are only promises and hopes…

but no plans.

~ Peter Drucker



It has been said ~ a goal without a plan is just a wish, and so it is true of any plan without a commitment. Promises and hopes are a good beginning point and they must be followed up with a commitment, plans and action to be realized.


Let’s say you are engaged in a conversation with your spouse about vacation planning and you throw out the idea of creating a travel wish list, a great place to begin. Step one complete …. we have a list of options, wishes and desires. Now, we have to move to step 2 – doing the research, asking questions, reading, consulting travel agents, looking at the work schedule, pinning down the best time for travel to each place and the best time to travel taking into consideration work commitments. Great, step 2 complete! Now, we are moving into step 3 – researching the necessary travel requirements, flights, hotels, visas, activities, etc.


OK, we have collected a host of necessary information to ensure that we can plan effectively, now it’s time to make the commitment ~ are you ready? This is where my mom would say ~ put your money where your mouth is and put up or shut up. Promises are empty without commitment and action. It doesn’t matter what the promise is about, it matters how you follow up the promise, what comes next? Do you remember the promise, do you forget that you made a promise because you are not really committed to the outcome?
