In order to create an awesome omelette, a few eggs must be broken.
I’m standing in front of my laptop with a few crates of eggs, determined to keep throwing them at the monitor until a decent meal can be served to you.
Here I was, all poised to jump into our New Year’s resolutions and realized that I left one of mine (okay a significant amount) undercooked.
I am incredibly good at generating ideas. I excel at starting things. I love to take what is, throw it into the blender and make something totally different with it.
Life is full of possibilities.
If the idea really floats my boat I will stay with it and have a great time.
But like most excitable types, I am easily wooed into the next great idea.
“Squirrel!” cries the brain, and off I run to the next big adventure.
I am surrounded with half finished great ideas.
A lot of them are still in the “scribbled down on sticky notes” stage.
If ever I was to have one goal in life it would have to be: Finish What You Start!
Taken literally, this is physically impossible, as the impulse to start things happens every five minutes or so.
But taken rationally, I suppose with some prioritizing I could get just a few main things actually ‘finished’ in a timely fashion.
It sounds painful, truth be told. And maybe messy. Definitely not ‘perfect’.
But really, where should we draw the line with ourselves?
I love myself enough to talk myself into doing the best thing for myself (like going to the gym), and I respect myself just enough to be able to sit through a little pain to accomplish it (“I was just there last week. Why should I come back today?”).
This is the last blog of 2014 and when I meet you on the other side, I would like it to be in the form of a fresher, slightly tastier version of a website.
I haven’t the faintest idea what I’m doing. It might be a complete disaster before I make something palatable.
But it’s the next step.
So be safe and have fun ushering in a Happy New Year!
I’ll be playing the egg toss game.
I hope I win!
