Delays, disappointments and defeats cause quitters to give up in resignation: losers, to give in to the frustrations: winners, to come through with determination.
William Arthur Ward
SUPER SATURDAY/ FINISH WHAT YOU START
In one of Garfield's cartoons he is shown resting droopy eyed in his bed thinking to himself: One of my pet peeves, he says to himself, is people who never finish what they start. As he cracks a knowing smile, he says, I do not happen to be one of those people. The last frame of the cartoon shows him under the bed covers saying, My philosophy is, Never Start Anything.
If you've ever begun a task and never finished it, you are not alone. We've all lost interest in things. It's normal, but if you are finding that there is more unfinished than finished then there is probably a reason for it.
There have been many times I've stopped doing something because I wasn't getting the results I wanted so I put it away for another day when I might be feeling a bit more creative.
Then there are times when I become so distracted by something else, that the project I was working on became very insignificant so I had to walk away and give my attention to whatever else was happening.
Other times I've started something because I thought it was important at the time and then later realized it was the last thing I should have become involved in. There were just too many really important things to do that if and when I had the time this would be the very last thing I'd want to do.
I think we all have the problem of having too many irons in the fire at one time. It's important to prioritize and do what needs our attention the most. I used to do this when things got busy at work and I find that I still have to do it at home too.
Too many tasks and not enough time causes a lot of frustration. Frustration causes all sorts of things like anger and depression. My goal today is to finish the most important thing on my to do list and leave frustration behind.
The wonderful thing is that we get to choose what we do and for me that makes for a SUPER Saturday. Today I'm very thankful for being able to choose what I want to do. I won't become dissatisfied with what I've failed to do, but will rejoice in the fact that at least for today, something was accomplished.
I hope your day is a SUPER one that is filled with the sense of accomplishment.
