Do you finish what you start? For many people starting something is the easy part. The difficult bit is to finish. You only have to look at all those unfinished DIY projects around the home, for example decorating jobs where the gloss has not yet been applied.
In business we may often get an idea or learn something new and then start doing it only to stop before finishing. The problem with this start and early stop method is we will never know if something will work if we keep stopping early.
Take Twitter as an example
Many people start using Twitter and after a few weeks decide that it is not working and so stop. For other people that have embraced Twitter and keep going they have found that persistence pays and the secret is time. It takes time to build a rapport with followers and indeed find good followers. A great many people are now getting good business from using Twitter and had they stopped using it this would have been lost.
This example is just one of many where the start and stoppers of this world lose out. Make sure that you see something through to a finish or until long enough has passed to know that you should finish it. If something fails it will give you valuable experience and you will always be able to learn something from trying.
