“There are two kinds of people, those who finish what they start and so on.” ~ Robert Byrne

We all seem to have them — those stalled projects we never quite get around to completing. What unfinished task could you wrap up this month? Perhaps it’s the last coat of paint on the trim in the bathroom, or the final rows on the blanket you were knitting, or the ending to the short story, or raking up the rest of the leaves.

My unfinished task is to hem two pairs of pants for my son that have been sitting on my sewing table for weeks, so I hereby resolve to get them both done this week. Think of the enormous satisfaction and sense of accomplishment we’ll all feel by finishing something this month.

Homework Assignment #10: Rescue a project from its current holding pattern this month. Leave a comment below and let us know what you’re going to finish. Here’s to your success!


Win a Deluxe Happy Simple Living Gift Basket

I’ll be giving away a gift basket chock-full of home and garden goodies plus several books at the end of the month. On January 31, 2013, I’ll draw one random name from everyone who commented during the month and that lucky person will win the gift basket. I hope you’ll stop by often this month and share your own ideas, thoughts and experiences.
