Episode Info: Dedication - the quality of being dedicated or committed to a task or purpose. (Google online definition)   Each of us have our own definition and understanding of what dedication is. We also place a certain amount of weight and importance depending on the connection we have with whatever it is we are dedicated to. For example, we are generally more dedicated to our children than we are our job. If our child is sick and we have no one else to care for them or we feel we should be the one to care for our sick child then we call in to work and tell them that we can't be there; we have a sick child that we need to care for.

But I feel as though I can't just give up on them and let them completely go. However, I don't have time for them all and I need to choose. Otherwise I will not become proficient or really skilled in any one area. I must decide on which one(s) are the most important to me. Which am I the MOST dedicated to?   The last thing we spoke about was "How to stay dedicated". I mentioned an accountability partner here and that is a great thing to have if you can find someone who is dedicated to you and to the achievement of your goal(s).
