Are You Your Own Worst Enemy And Are You Finishing Whatever You Start?

Are you your own worse enemy and are you finishing whatever you start?

You can be your own worse enemy or choose to be your own best friend. The choice is yours to make by the thoughts you encourage and act upon.

How well you follow through, you may say depends on what you intend to do and the position you are in. Where then is your follow-though trait? Do you even have any or do you simply procrastinate. Always going to do something but it never gets done because something always get in the way.

By the same token, do you make promises that you never keep? Why is it that people don't follow through?

My son recommended to me that I acquired "Following Through: A Revolunaty New Model For Finishing Whatever You Start" Authored by:  I purchased this book some time ago but only read it in part. Some thing I saw today inspired me to share an Excerpt:

What it was is this story is built around one man's intention of getting a huge supply of firewood ready for the long winter...Like the best of intentions it was never done.

" One chilly Sunday afternoon in November, after many weeks of procrastination, I decided that enough was enough. It was definitely time to get the job done, especially since a big snowstorm was on the way. I also wanted to watch the Minnesota Vikings football game on television, but I decided that the firewood must come first.

As I sat on the couch looking out the window at the place in the yard where a winter's worth of cut and neetly stacked firewood should have been, I noticed a squirrel gathering acorns. I thought, "Then I lingered a while longer to think about how lucky I am to be a human. "After all," I thought, "I have intelligence and foresight. I can use my mind to figure out exactly what I should do. All that little squirrel can do is run on instinct. He probably doesn't even have a clue about why he's picking up acorns and storing them away. He just does it." Then I watched the football game. Including the  entire half-time show. And the entire postgame show.

And then I decided that since it would soon be dark and it was already snowing, I might as well watch the next game, too.

It hit me: The human mind is magnificently designed, but onlu to help us do half the job.

The whole job is doing whatever it takes to get what we need and want out of life. The first half of the job is figuring out what to do. The second half of the job is doing it."

You become experts at figuring out what you need to do and the best course of action to take. That is the first half referenced above.

The second half with the best of intention is rarely followed through. Not without the discipline, mindset and an instinct-based guidance system for the work at hand. The squirrel sets the example because his guidance system is naturally programmed this way - weather change is coming, store food for when you cannot go out.

Be like the squirrel, don't just plan, ACT! And visualize the finished product or project.


Take a look in the mirror and ask yourself: Am I my own worst enemy? Am I sabotaging myself? Can I finish whatever I start? You have to be honest with yourself. Only then will you be able to make the right decision as to what you do, what you finish, and where you go from there beyond your intentions.  Be a Action taker, and be your own best friend.  Finish what you started.
