Finish the work

You had the idea, you gathered the resources and put in the initial effort. Now see it all the way through.

It probably won’t turn out exactly how you imagined. Even so, there’s value in it or you wouldn’t have started it in the first place.

Yes, plenty of new, different possibilities beckon. But what good are possibilities if you never see them through to fulfillment?

Just because you’ve run into obstacles and frustrations is no reason to give up. On the contrary, those challenges confirm the value of what you’re doing.

Perhaps some adjustments are called for. So make those adjustments to your expectations, to your strategy, to your day-to-day tactics.

Then give yourself a push forward with renewed energy and commitment. Finish the work, do what you have chosen to do, and bring to life the value that is yours to create.
