Sign on the dotted line forever

What does commitment mean? There’s 2 kinds of commitment. The first kind is just words. The second kind is “stake” or wager.
The first kind is where you sign on the dotted line. This is the easy kind. Talk is cheap as they say. Humans are pretty bad about understanding consequences and accurately foreseeing the future. Mostly they just guess based on intuition.
The second kind is the real deal. This is what you want. When you put down a deposit on new apartment, it’s real commitment.
When I talk to people about their political views or their dreams, it’s usually just lip service. They’re committed as long as it doesn’t cost them anything. You don’t have to get out of bed on time. You don’t have to start a blog. If someone mentions something you disagree with, and you’re faced with a choice of looking bad by coming out with your political views, you can choose to let it go. That’s ok, but when you’re ready to sacrifice your social status for what you believe, then you’ll be really committed.
