On this 1st day of the year, when many people are making New Year’s Resolutions, I prefer to make Commitments.
While Resolutions are often self centered and short lived, Commitments serve others and are intent on permanence. Further, making Commitments is a recognition that while we as individuals matter, individuality is not Supreme; community matters, society matters, life matters…
As a Student and Practitioner of Servant Leadership, I believe that each of us have the potential to do great things, but I have long recognized that achieving our potential requires us to Commit to and Serve others.
In the past, I have made personal commitments to be a better husband, a better father, a better brother, and a better son.
As a Healthcare Leader, I have made professional commitments to know my craft, grow my people, and add value to every interaction I have with customers, clients, and the people I work with.
As a Commissioned Military Officer, I committed to serve our great Nation and pay whatever price it took to Support and Defend the Constitution of the United States.
Today, my New Year’s Commitment is to fight for our Nation to make a set of Commitments to each of you.
Three Commitments for Freedom:
- A Commitment to Investing in a Lifetime of Education and Training
- A Commitment to Achieving Livable Wages, Reasonable Benefits, and an Achievable Retirement
- A Commitment to Guaranteeing Access to Comprehensive Healthcare for All People
Today, I invite you to join me in this fight to make these Commitments a reality for all Americans.
On this first day of the New Year, please take a few minutes to invite your friends and family to join us in this fight and donate to this cause if you can.
With your help, your Commitment, we can let Washington know that we are done with their Failed Leadership.
Failure Doesn’t Work! We Can Do Better!
It’s Time to Clean House!
