You Always Finish What You Start?

    So I'm going through a bit of a rough patch, and my first response was to run and quit.

    Looking back, I've done that alot, but lately I've become determined to always finish what I start. (Specifically school, and fitness)

    So looking back at your life, did you always finish what you started? Did you finish what you started at least the majority of the time? Was there ever a point in your life that you feel like you had to turn it around because you were giving up too much?

    Honestly, I'm hoping for a little inspiration here. I'm hitting a low lately that I can't seem to overcome. It's making me re-evaluate my life so far, and has made me question my future. (Both the one I planned, and the one I supposedly "want") I know it's not your job to make my life easier, but sometimes I just need someone to slap me out of this funk. Any takers?

    THIS! Nobody's perfect, but if you at least try, that's what matters the most.

    OMG LET'S DO THIS, GET THIS SHIT DONE NOW!!!!icon_biggrin.gif

    I'm a Go getter, i like to get things done quick and neat(that doesn't apply to sex though, lol!).
    But i'm also a big procrastinator, so sometimes it takes me awhile to get some stuff done, goals included. Goals take a long time to achieve, and it takes a lot of patience which i don't have, so i abandon them until months later when i'm reminded of what i need to be doing, and i pick it up again.
    What i realize is that motivation is very important in finishing what i start. When i started seeing the changes in my body during my bulking phase, that kept me going because finally, i'm seeing the fruits of my hard work.
    Basically, if you really want something, you'll do whatever you can to get it.

    I'm a perfectionist of sorts and if something isn't turning out perfect (or what I perceive to be perfection) I abandon it. Not good. A good example is my aptitude for art that I never developed because I thought nothing I drew was good enough despite others telling me I had talent.

    That said there are no hard and fast rules in life. You don't always have to finish what you start. Sometimes you gotta know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em. Know when to walk away and know when to run. Only you can decide if it is a good idea to quit or if it is fear that's keeping you from finishing.

    Oh... eventually. Hence the garage plus auxiliary buildings full of half-finished projects.

    Although lately I have been forcing myself to terminate some projects that are an obvious waste of time. Like putting down a book that is utterly un-interesting. For years, that was like an unspeakable crime. I always used to finish every one, no matter what.

    @ Trollileo I'm kinda the same, i finish about 50% of the stuff I start. Sometimes I lose interest, but I always finish the important stuff.

    @TheAlchemixt. Wow, if you can't even finish a sentence, your life must be rough icon_rolleyes.gificon_lol.gif

    @bottomasianboy20: Yeah, that's usually what counts.

    @mplsmike: Agreed.
