Starts and stops, half-baked ideas, a drawer of unfinished projects? Do you look back and find a long list of tasks that you never got completed? Sound familiar? The following tips will change the way you work so you can see things through to the end and ensure you finish all your projects.

#1 Create Micro Goals

I am a big fan of cutting a goal down into micro goals so that the larger goal feels easily attainable. Achieving each of your smaller goals helps provide the necessary boost to keep going. If your goal is to eat healthier, your first micro goal may be to research about healthy foods and meals and set realistic expectations. The next micro goals are to then design a meal plan, go grocery shopping, and prepare your meals for the week. These micro goals are small enough that they do not seem daunting but simultaneously help you achieve the larger goal

Communicate your goal to a trustworthy friend who will remind you to stay on track. This friend should be someone who has your best interest in mind, will check up on your progress and will use encouraging words to keep you going.

Imagine the great sense of accomplishment you will feel when you look back from the finish line and recollect your journey. How satisfying does that feel? How proud are you going to feel knowing that you overcame so many hurdles and hard days? So damn proud. Don't you want that moment? Work towards it!

#4 Take A Time Out

No Title

The most valuable thing I do is frequently give up on a project.  I don't really give up, I just throw up my hands and set it aside.  The important thing is that I leave an organized trail so I can pick up the project later when I change my mind. Which I nearly always do.  It turns out sometimes you can't finish a project because you're not ready, or you don't have everything you need to complete it, and waiting is the best option.  It's vital to revisit old quit projects to re-evaluate your readiness to pick them back up, because it very well may be time to see it through to the end.

#5 Write, Read and Reward

In order to see the possibility become a reality I suggest writing down the goal multiple times a day and repeat aloud, often! I also think rewarding oneself for accomplishing parts of the main goal along the way. Whether it is a bubble bath with champagne, a mani-pedi, dinner with good friends, or a walk in a new neighborhood, we should honor our efforts. That will push us to finish things through to their end.
