What pattern are you stuck in? Are you happy with it?

  • I have cultivated a massive tendency to ‘openness’ to information and perspectives — because I know I can get set in my ways (and now I’m set in my ways of being open)
  • that I use a set of externalised commitment devices to keep myself consistent and persistent, even though I feel myself to be pretty flaky at times
  • that have people around me and make public statements and commitments to make myself ethical, partly because I know I can be well dodgy if I’m not careful!

What have you created a commitment to in your life? What do you think about that?
