(Distinctions are subtleties of language that, when gotten, cause a shift in a belief, behavior, value or attitude.)
Commitment is a desire or goal that is strong and obvious. Commitments are useful. However, many commitments have built into them shoulds, wants, declarations and intentions. Some people use commitments as a way to get “juice” – be respected, admired, top dog, to show off, etc.
Evidence is provable by the physical universe.
Commitments and ideas are great and get things started, but evidence is the truth of what is. When you demonstrate to yourself and others that you’re really producing or delivering or completing, your energy is focused and effective.
Commitments are expensive old technology. Evidence is easy, flowing, attractive new technology. Just Do It!
