To this day, at 48 years-129 days-and 42 seconds old, wait. . . 43 . . .44 . . .Oh! Never mind. My point is, to this day, one of my greatest accomplishments has been to finish my first novel. I even went so far as to spend a few years rolling it through edits, THEN even published it. Wohoooo! It was a great feeling. But that feeling has faded to black. I’m working on a new book now, and am failing miserably in getting to the finish line. As a matter of fact, I can’t even see the finish line.
So today, class, the lesson is about finishing.
Repeat after me: I WILL FINISH ____________
You fill in the blank with whatever project has you stuck.
And since the internet has taken us to an international scale, I’ve compiled a list of languages translating the above sentence. See if yours is in the list.
French—je vais finir
German—i wird beendet
Swedish—vag kommar att avsluta
Spanish—voy a terminar
Danish—jeg vil slutte
Redneck—git er done
If I didn’t include yours, it’s because I’m not intelligent enough to make my computer translate the different letter characters yet. Maybe next time.
Whatever you are working on, repeat the above phrase as often as necessary to do the job. Push forward. Use whatever motivation needed; rewards can’t hurt.
