Evergreen Cemetery, Riverside CA
"When a task is once begun,
Never leave it 'til its done.
Be the task great or small,
do it well or not at all."
I am good at starting things. I am good at finishing things. Its the in between that I have trouble with. Somewhere in the middle. Doubts arise. Fears cloud the skies. I begin with enthusiasm. I wrap it up nicely. But the in-between. The day to day. The grunt work. There is where I struggle. So I am working on the carry through. I am setting my eyes on the prize and gonna plug along.
Nothing happens unless you do something....something in between....in between the start and the finish. If you read the headstones in any cemetery, there is inscribed a start date and an end date with a dash in between. Its the dash in between that is the something I am thinking about. The task here is living. Do it well. And don't leave until its done.
