I’ve started, so I will……


A task left undone remains undone in two places – at the actual location of the task, and inside your head. Incomplete tasks in your head consume the energy of your attention as they gnaw at your conscience. They siphon off a little more of your personal power every time you delay. No need to be a perfectionist, that’s debilitating in an imperfect world, but it’s good to be a ‘completionist’. If you start it, finish it…or forget it.

Exercise: extra credit points if you do this now..
1)Make a list of all your incomplete task.
2)Put them in order of priority or urgency.
3)Work through the list- Finish it or forget it. Strike it off the list.
4)Notice how you feel after each task and. Make it your habit to become a Completionist.

    A simple yet very powerful post! Thank you Deepak.

    I’ve explored a similar concept in a blog post and, if you wouldn’t mind, I’d love to update that post to quote and reference this post?

    Thanks again!
