Do you always finish what you start?

There are two types of people in this world. People who start new things and people who finish things. A very large number of people in this world are initiators i.e. people who start new things. A very small number of people in this world are the ones who finish whatever they start.

In order to be successful you need to be the second type. That is, you need to be a person who starts new things as well as finishes everything he or she has started.

When you don’t finish the things you start and move on to the next thing then you are effectively throwing away your time and hard work. You can do hard work again but you can never bring back the spent time. Life is short and precious and with this knowledge you must move decide whether you want to throw away your time or not. Time is one of the most precious commodities mainly because everybody has the same amount of time. This is probably something people have told each other many times. But this applies really well in this case. That is, finish whatever you start.

Suppose you have thought of a project and have started working on it. Midway through you get the idea that the project is going to be a failure so you decide to abandon it. However, you should not even start the project if you think it will fail. Do the thinking beforehand. Again, it may take time to think about the project too. And you may say that, that time is also wasted. Well, you can just keep doing other things in the time in which you are thinking about your new project.

When you are 100% sure that you want to take the project to the end and finish it then only start it. Do not start what you cannot finish or will not finish. Finishing something you start is more important than starting it.

People who finish whatever they start and stick to it through all odds are the ones who are successful.
