Chicken Or Pig

A woman accompanied her husband to the doctor's office.

After his checkup, the doctor called the wife into his office alone. He said, "Your husband is suffering from a very severe stress disorder. If you don't follow my instructions carefully, your husband will surely die.

"Each morning, fix him a healthy breakfast. Be pleasant at all times. For lunch make him a nutritious meal. For dinner prepare an especially nice meal for him.”

"Don't burden him with chores. Don't discuss your problems with him; it will only make his stress worse. Do not nag him. Most importantly, make love to him regularly.”

"If you can do this for the next 10 months to a year, I think your husband will regain his health completely."

On the way home, the husband asked his wife, "What did the doctor say?"

"He said you're going to die."

So much for commitment.  At least she was honest. Right?

But what if you are committed…that committed?

Think about it this way, the chicken is involved, but the pig is committed! At least in terms of a ham and eggs breakfast. 

What can you achieve with commitment?   Commitment to your workout plans, your nutrition goals, your sales numbers, your marriage vows, your reading plan, and even those commitments you have yet to make, but know you should.

You can do what the wife did – don’t commit and simply be honest about the outcome.

Or you can commit fully. You can be the pig.
