Do you finish what you start? Or – like me have many projects ready to go!

I have many things and projects in my office of “Started but unfinished ideas/projects/business”.  Do you?

Over many years these things have been piling up around me.

Some projects were doomed from the start.  Other projects are staring at me ready for action.

What things have you started and never finished?

What ideas or dreams are waiting for you in a file or a stack of papers as “Started but unfinished”?

It’s time to start now and head them toward completion. 

For me I have had two projects on my mind:

  1. Finishing writing the details of a one a 1 year sales accountability plan.
  2. Restart my learning and playing guitar. 

Pick at least one project or idea and begin!

Put this on your goal list and monitor and record daily work toward seeing a finish line and completion. 

Even if you only work a few minutes per day, you will be surprised how quickly the idea or project will take shape.

Then it can be ongoing or complete.

William Shakespeare – “All glory comes from daring to begin.”  Good Luck!


A mentor is an experienced and trusted advisor. Sometimes we have face-to-face mentors and mentoring. Sometimes we have indirect mentoring through reading books, watching videos, on-line, and possibly in passing with family and friends.

Not knowing it at the time, my dad was my first mentor in sales training. This is one of those things I realized later in life that the mentoring I received was tremendous. My sales career, once started, was greatly influenced by his methods and persistence in sales.

I read all kinds of books. Some novels for enjoyment. Self help books and many books related to sales, selling, running and operating a business.

However, I knew that there was a lot more to learn about sales and business operations. I studied and read many mentors. Zig Ziglar, Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, Jim Rohn, Earl Nightingale. Dr. Robert Schuller to name a just few. There are countless others in my library. I have had privilege to meet some of these people and have enjoyed reading and learning about their thoughts and ideas on life and business.

Do you have a mentoring program on-going for daily learning. There is so much material available today, it can be mind-boggling.

Start or really get going on a self-education program of your personal interests. I have created daily routines, daily rituals that ensure pathways for me to progress forward. I set goals and measure daily. You can too.  Find a mentor and never stop learning.

Let me know your thoughts.

Make 2018 your best year yet!
