Consider this scenario — you’ve just been made aware of something new, like a new venture or project, or you have a new goal, which gets you all excited.
You start off great, with lots of energy and enthusiasm only for it to decline after a few days, and within a couple of weeks, all that excitement and enthusiasm is gone.
And you do what you do regularly — you abandon the project or goal.
Has that ever happened to you? If you’re like most of us, that scenario has played out way too often for our liking. It’s time to get this handled.
Knowing why we typically don’t finish things or projects is important because every time we fail to complete something we start, it:
- Causes us frustration and humiliation.
- Enhances our reputation as someone who cannot be trusted to complete things.
- Lowers our self-confidence and self-esteem.
- Decreases our integrity especially with ourself.
