See Things Through

Microblog #13

I’m the kind of person who always has to have a project to work on. I think I get that from my grandma. Her house was always filled with half-finished projects that she didn’t care if we messed with. I loved that about her. As a kid, it made visits to her house magical.

As a creative, though, I recognize the folly of that pattern of behavior. If you’re always starting new things and never finishing what you start, you end up with a room (or a hard drive) of unfinished things.

It’s something I’ve had to learn to overcome. Like my grandma, I have plenty of unfinished things. Understanding how to stay committed and see things through is why I also have plenty of finished things.
