See it through

Before you start any new endeavor, make sure you are committed to seeing it through to completion. Before you stop, make sure you have finished all the work.

Doing a dozen things halfway accomplishes nothing. With the same effort you could do a half dozen things completely.

Yes, the experience counts for something even when you don’t finish what you start. But what good is a lot of experience if you never see anything all the way through?

Many times just a little more effort can prevent the waste of all the effort that you’ve already put forth. The work you do to finish the job enables you to benefit from all the other work you’ve done.

You’ve already invested yourself in the endeavor. Go ahead and do what is necessary to make that investment pay off.

Start work that you will finish and finish the work you have started. Achievement is yours when you see it through.

— Ralph Marston
