Getting started is hard. Everybody knows that. And therefore there are countless tips and guides on how to get started. After all, once you get started everything will be fine. Right?
Not necessarily. It can also be hard to keep going in the middle, but what I'm talking today is finishing something. Not just get something done, but actually get it done, once and for good.
It might not be that easy as it sounds. It is, in a matter of fact, possible to procrastinate finishing up something. I found it out today.
I was doing my work and I was already close to finishing it. But a couple of hours later I was still working on it. Tuning small details here and there. Putting of the last remaining tasks.
Sure, because of that the thing I was working on is probably a bit better. But on the other hand, those small improvements wouldn't matter that much if I would have been able to do something else productive for those couple more hours.
So yeas, it can be as hard to finish something that it is hard to get started. And while procrastinating on getting started you usually do something else that might be productive in other ways procrastinating in finishing something can be more of a waste of time when you are tweaking useless minor things.
