Start Something & Finish It

August 21, 2006

“There!” and “Whew!” are two of the most satisfying exclamations in the English language, especially when they punctuate the completion of a difficult task. Bringing a project or chore to completionย  evokes feelings of satisfaction, relief, and inner pride.

Procrastination, on the other hand, is like a gray cloud that hangs over everything you do and dampens your spirits.


Someplace in your home or office is a task that has just been sitting there waiting for you to come along and tackle it. Don’t put it off, dive in and get it done! You’ll be glad you did. And the good feeling you get when you get something done will light a glimmer of hope that you’ll get other things finished as well.

Let this be the start of a great week for all of us. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just like you said…
    Got piles of work to be done
    I guess procrastinating is not so good after all
    Though it does satisfy for a while…
    Moderations the word I guess

    Success lies in the finishing. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Procrastinating will not get any work done. But when you are done with the workload satisfaction will always be there.

    Few things are more satisfying than a job well done. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Have a great week ahead!


    Thanks, Kyels. You, too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    i used to be a perfect procrastinator when in high school … there was nothing i enjoyed more than last minute panic ~ the adrenaline rush is something else LOL these days, i plan a little better but there’s still an imp inside of me that goes “c’mon, alex, live dangerously …”

    Hehe.. I know how that feels.ย ๐Ÿ˜†

    You know, your words are like balm to my soul, and inspiration to kick start something. Like a yellow post-it note with something inspiring scribbled across it. Thanks sweetie, you’ve helped me, and then some through your words.

    Ann,ย whatever I wrote & shared with everyone on my blog is mainly to psyche myself. Hence, no compliments are necessary. Besides, each of us goes through “tough” times & I thank God that I haveย friends like you who truly cares for me. So, just remember that we’re always here & there for each other. HUGS!

    If only I can finish my job…I will have 2 heavy shoulders lifted. Right now it’s very heavy.

    Poor Che-Cheh, I’m sure that when your job is complete, you’ll be able to get rid of those heaviness & relax again.
