Working with the 15 Commitments has made me realize that no one is perfect and we all make mistakes, but we can learn from those mistakes and move on by just being responsible. By focusing on Commitment #1, taking radical responsibility, I not only help myself but can help others with problems that they’re having. The 15 Commitments have also taught me that appreciation really goes a long way. When any of my staff excels in a task, large or small, I let them know how much I appreciate them. With that little appreciation each one of them will go that much further above and beyond in the next task because they know they are appreciated. By looking at everyone and everything as an ally (Commitment #13) my mindset has really changed. I realize now that obstacles are not a threat, they are a challenge to see how much I can learn and how much I can change.
