Finishing is not a very popular concept these days. As a culture, we are great “starters” but not such great “finishers”. We start marriages, but don’t finish. We start college but don’t finish. Unfortunately, many people start parenting, but don’t finish.
Why? In my opinion, when the going gets tough, we don’t like tough….we like easy. Quitting is simply easier than pushing through.
If we want to be really successful at anything worthwhile in life, we have to learn to be finishers. I’m creative, I lose interest easily. I love to be “on to the next thing”.
To be successful however, I had to discipline myself to become a finisher.
Actually, I really hate finishing….I don’t even like to finish my supper.
