Stick with it

Carefully consider each commitment before making it. Then, when you've made the decision to do it, stick with it.

When you have a good, solid, clearly defined objective and a meaningful reason for reaching it, get started. And once you've started, see it through.

Getting just halfway through a dozen projects might give you some good experience. Yet you won't have much to show for that experience.

Working all the way through just one project will take you much less time. And when you're finished, you'll have something of real, lasting value.

The way to keep going is to keep reminding yourself why you started in the first place. When the going gets tough, you can stick with it by having a compelling reason to do so.

What a shame it would be to quit when you're just a few days shy of reaching the goal. Stick with it, and enjoy the many fruits of your efforts.
