Involved or Committed?

I have always loved the analogy between the words involved and committed. I don’t remember where I first heard it or in what context it was being used, but it stuck and I got the message loud and clear.
Do you know the difference between involved and committed? Look down at your breakfast plate next time you are having ham and eggs… the chicken is involved, but the pig is committed!
So ask yourself, are you involved or committed? Are you the chicken or the pig? I think you get the message!
Best to you in all you do!

    Short blog but profound meaning! Involved or Committed? That title alone got me thinking what this article has to say. Let just say, it took my a few hours to ponder what you meant by the chicken and the pig. Then it got me thinking am I involved or committed in my life? Truthfully, I feel like I am the “eggs” as your reference with the breakfast metaphor, especially in my situation of school. I feel that I am involved in my school career but there’s still that ounce of doubt that I want to upped and leave and start something new. I want to be like the pig and be committed in my future instead of watching it happen on the sidelines. Sure, I might be involved now, at the start of my college career, but I want to be committed by the time I received my diploma.

    If you are the EGGS Ann, you are neither involved or committed, you are just a side product of the one involved… something to think about…
