Today is Decision Day, which I recommend as a new National Focus Day. December 31st is the one day of the year when people seem to have no trouble making decisions. Almost anyone can quickly give you a list of his or her New Years resolutions, which are the result of a decision-making process. However, as we well know from our own past resolutions, making such a decision is only the beginning of the process. Commitment and follow-up are required all year long. The same applies to your other decisions. Never decide to do something unless you are committed to following through with it. Similarly, never tell someone that you will take on an obligation unless you mean it. Perhaps "Commitment" should have its spelling changed to "Commitmeant".
