Because I said I would has developed a Promise Planner™ template that you can use to help you contemplate your promises. Our local chapters, our character education programming with students, and our employees all use the Promise Planner to help with contemplation. Perhaps fittingly, it’s sort of a checklist in itself. It challenges you to think of possible barriers to success and provides some best practices that your promises might need. Our hope is that the Promise Planner is reasonably simple and self-explanatory. Fill it out using one of your promises, and its functionality and benefits should become much clearer than just the blank form. We provide this downloadable and printable copy at no cost. We just ask that this tool not be used for commercial purposes.

The promise to get help…
To fulfill a promise, sometimes we need help. We need the strength to get better. Sometimes that strength comes from the love of others. Do not be afraid to reach out to others when you need it. Do not give up.
