One Way to Finish What You Start | The Parking Lot Confessional

I sat down four times today to write this post. And four times I got distracted. Well, that’s not entirely true. In one sitting I managed to get a couple of paragraphs written, but they weren’t very good. So I deleted them and I went and futzed around Facebook until it was time for me to be somewhere else, doing something or other.

*sigh*

This week we’re looking back at our New Year’s resolutions and seeing how we’re tracking on our goals.

My goal this year was simple: to finish what I start.

I’m happy to report that, for the most part, I’ve been meeting this goal. Hang on, there’s the phone. Be right back…

  1. Well,I will have to say I was just all set to do this blog when the phone rang and it was my daughter. Most of the time I do okay as far as finishing what start. There are times that it might take a little longer than planned. I never make New Years resolutions so I don’t worry about that.

  5. Head down…I’m trying to finish the year with post a day. Haven’t been doing a post a day – have done 159 posts in 258 days which is 68%, right? That’s a low mark for me – I think I have to push it to 80%…..It’s hard. I guess the best way to finish what you start is to choose your goal carefully.

  6. Great suggestion for the postaday/postaweek20011… I’m also trying to do that, and pretty much accomplishing the postaweek2011. Also, trying to complete the year keeping my head over my shoulders, managing my students, 2 toddlers, a baby and a husband!!! 😮 This one is the hardest task, and hopefully, I’ll finish it – and keep my head where it should be! 😮 Cheers and thanks for the ongoing inspiration!

  7. When I need quite time I drift into the recesses of my mind. I have always been a daydreamer and when I get stressed out I automatically daydream. It is the safest way I know of to keep my self control in tact.
