Is the model riding on this skateboard for a pretty photo, or is she trying to get in a little extra cardio? Probably both, right? Looking stylish while finishing a project seems unheard of, but it’s not actually how we start that even matters. Medals aren’t given to those who start, but to those who finish what they started. Most people think the hardest part is just starting a project. But truthfully, the hardest parts are the middle of the project and the end.
Can you be diligent through the ENTIRE process? Depends on the project, right? In order to receive the medal you must take the first steps AND become a finisher.
Starting has never been enough. I wish people would stop preaching this message. ” Just get started , just take the first step and your almost there.” Um not exactly.
Finishing is better than starting
Patience is better than pride.
- Does starting a project count? Yes, you get a few points for being brave.
- Does getting to the middle of the project count? Yes, you get a lot of points.
- Does finishing the project count? Yes, you have now won the grand prize. Finishing the project and doing your best is what counts most of all.
But we do (strongly and earnestly) desire for each of you to show the same diligence and sincerity ( all the way through) in realizing and enjoying the full assurance and development of (your) hope until the end. Hebrews 6:11
How will you finish the race that God has set before you this week? Whatever you find your heart to do this week, do it with diligence. Your commitments deserve your best, so JUST DO IT.
