In the 2nd day of 2019, I'm already asking myself: "What did you accomplish this week?"
It's taken me way too long to realize there are no social points for unfinished work. In fact, often times you get negative credit for wasting time on something you're not willing or able to complete.
Some people say you should finish what you start. Others claim you need to pivot to better address the needs of the market. Both sides are correct.
In biology, you can observe amoebae under a microscope and see they are trying to move to find food. In their case, they're programmed for survival and are focused.
When I'm not focused on survival, I might have ideas different than putting food on the table and this leads to projects of the experimental variety. I.e. projects that go unfinished. Maybe the goal isn't to have a new business. Rather, it's just to learn something about myself or level up a particular skill.
If, like me, you often fail to finish a project, maybe you need to simply reframe what finish means. Set up many goals to strive toward and celebrate your successes.
This week, I am able to complete six pull-ups in one go. That's a 600% increase from the starting point a couple of months back.
How about you? Anything worth reporting?
