Commitment or Contribution?

People often say that they are 'committed' because they are truly convinced that they are delivering 'their part of the job', their contribution.

But there's a great difference between commitment and contribution, that can be simply explained by the fable of Bacon and eggs.

Bacon and Eggs Fable

A pig and a chicken were discussing the essence of a farmer’s breakfast.
The chicken said “That's obviously 'Eggs'” and the pig said “It must be Bacon”.

After a long discussion the pig finally concluded, “When it comes to breakfast, you merely provide a contribution. I, however, make a full commitment.”

What about your friends or partners, do they make a contribution, offering lip service or are they really committed?

Find out and find the difference between real friendship and acquaintanceship.
