Except it hopefully won't result in two kids and a

00:23

dog on the line committing to doing your homework whether

00:28

you're making that commitment to your teacher your parents your

00:31

friends your tutor or even yourself basically a promise And

00:35

by keeping promises you build trust on by breaking them

00:38

you lose it So uh why bother You might ask

00:43

Well here's the thing about building trust trust equals freedom

00:46

Let's Look at this scenario tommy here promises his mom

00:49

he'll finish his homework But when tommy's mom leaves he's

00:54

faced with a choice to do his homework or tio

00:57

not do his homework that is the question After all

01:00

there are fun things happening outside of his room So

01:02

01:06

interest of showing both sides of the story let's create

freak out if her son had suddenly been cloned and

01:38

we'll take a look at what hap Well would you

01:44

look at that tommy's Mom just gave them an entirely

01:47

unscripted answer But more importantly since he followed through with

01:50

his commitment he's become more trustworthy End therefore he's afforded

01:53

more freedom And what about timmy Wow what a natural

02:01

and honest depiction of what would happen in this exact

02:04

situation if it were in real life Well it looks

02:06

like it's important to follow through with commitment to school

02:08

work It'll please your teachers and parents and it's beneficial

02:11

to be seen as a trustworthy person And not is 00:02:14.47 --> [endTime] a freaky evil clone Is that right
