Jim’s Journal: Just Finish, Why Don’t You?

March 17, 2014 in Jim's Journal

If I had a penny for every person that I knew who started writing a book and didn’t finish, or who started work on their Ph.D., but didn’t complete their dissertation, or who shared with me a phenomenal idea for a new business or product but didn’t see it through to completion, I’d be able to afford hanging out with Warren Buffet, Bill Gates and Judge Judy.  Why don’t we finish?  I remember when I was young and didn’t want to eat the liver, okra or lima beans that my mom had cooked for dinner that night she would always say, “Eat everything on your plate…there are people starving in Africa who would love to have what you’re about to throw away.”  This journal is my call for you to finish what’s on your plate.  Stop making excuses!  Stop procrastinating!  And stop putting other things in the way!  You started it, now finish it!  When you do, you’re going to be so proud of yourself and you’re going to feel so accomplished.  There’s nothing like the high you feel after finishing writing a book.  I have firsthand knowledge.  You’re going to add to your legacy and you’re going to serve as a role model for the others who are considering doing the same thing.  Forget the “ready” and the “aim” it’s time for you to fire!
