One thing that stood out to me as I reflected on last year was that there were too many great ideas that I started and didn't finish. I tend to have a 3 month period of working on things and then I get distracted and do other things. It would be okay if I kept doing what I started, but I often forfeit one for the next. I want to change that and am going to focus on doing just one thing the whole year. Other benefits will come from that one goal, but only if I stick with it.

Gabby, I do that making jewelry. I start a necklace and lose interest because it doesn't look the way I want it to look. I put it aside and wait for a bead show so I can buy something to change it and forget about it. Six months later I find it and think its gorgeous. I also by beads to make something. I don't like the idea so I put them aside also. Months later in the middle of the night I get an epiphany and have to make something right away. I have to put that on a brain post it until I can make it later on that day.

I know my brain works way too fast at times and as I am doing one thing my brain is on to something else so I get caught up in the something else. Some times I have to slow down my thought process to stay focused on something I want to finish. Not always an easy task but sometimes staying focused isn't easy.
