Finish it

November 13, 2018

No, I'm not talking about the whole PhD. I'm talking about the small tasks that make up the whole.There's always pressure to do more. Start the next thing. Follow up on the latest idea. But every time we take on something new, it takes attention and energy away from the other things you've started.One of the best habits you can develop is to finish the thing you've started before moving on to the next one.It means ignoring the pressure. It means putting off that new idea. It means facing the discomfort of solving the problem in front of you.
