Do you finish everything that you start ?

We all have a ton to do these days. I know that I have a few projects that I need to get back to and complete. Just for example I need to finish sealing the bottom of my new aluminum boat. Ok so it is new to me. But hey I got it for 25 dollars at auction. I figure if it was jo good it is worth more than that in the aluminum.

I finish everything I start. I cannot stand for things to go undone. Alot of times I cannot finish or complete things as fast as I would like to, but I eventually get it done. I am a very organised person and I like for everything to be clean and in its place. I cannot stand clutter. I make me a list each day of things I need to get done and I go through and do each one. If I do not get them all done, I add the ones that are left, to my list of things I need to do the next day. I try to keep all things done so I can enjoy my time with my husband and my daughter when he is home from work. We like to spend alot of time together and I cannot do that if we do not have other things done around the home.

DISCONTINUITY is a vexing problem. For those experiencing it, this is a familiar scenario- starting something, and leaving it halfway through on some pretext or the other. But the problem can be nipped in the bud before it becomes habitual and puts your life in a tizzy. All you need to learn is manage discontinuity.Ask yourself what it is that makes you leave things half way through. Is it - improper planning, poor resource management, fluctuating levels of motivation, or lack of encouragement? Whatever the cause, attitudinal shifts and better management of emotions can solve your problem.The best inspiration often comes from within. Understand that you can overcome the temptation to give up. Fill your work area with motivational quotes, clippings, images or souvenirs. Learn to believe in your inherent capability to get the job done. Use your weakness positively.When you are given a new assignment, what is your typical reaction? Probably enthusiastic. But how do you sustain the same momentum till the completion of the task? Simple, explore ways to do accomplish the task in a more interesting manner at every stage. Create a new routine everyday and reorder your priorities.
