What did you leave undone? Do you intend to try again in 2017 or let it go?
I'm a finisher. So getting shit done is one of my greatest joys in life. Checking the box is my gold star. I don't need anything else or anyone's praise.
But, there are times when Stuff gets started and Stuff stays incomplete. Those are rare occasions and usually it is for a reason, even subconsciously. If I question mid-stride why I am doing something and can't find a compelling enough answer, I quit. I'm a big time quitter on anything that ceases to make sense to me.
So, do I pick it up and try try again?
Not really. Unless I find a new reason to say yes. And then, The Thing becomes a new checkbox, with new motivations to finish. It becomes a whole Other Thing. And the original try stays incomplete forever. And I'm super OK with that.
