teshuva - a practical plan

The fourth step of teshuva, as is written in this infographic, is resolution: make a firm commitment not to repeat the harmful action. I'd like to add that a firm commitment includes a practical plan how to avoid repeating the harmful action. Many of us are in a rut when it comes to our weaknesses and it will take a lot more than a firm resolution to keep us from falling back into our bad habits. We must have a plan! We need to analyze what brought us to this negative behavior, what our triggers are, what we will do when the trigger goes off again, or how can we avoid a situation that will bring on the trigger, what will we do if we slip (such as a penalty that will be a strong motivator to keep to our firm commitment). Step #4 of teshuva takes a lot of thoughtful planning, without which, it is not complete or effective in the long term.

To commenter #7 Jewish Mom

I am working on becoming a more patient person. When I don't understand something or when I feel misunderstood, I lose patience and shoot my mouth off. Sad, but oh so true. You have just helped me identify my trigger. Lately I have been working hard not to snap at family members when I do become impatient. Thank you for your thoughtful insights. May you have a good year! :-)
