What have you finished today? What will you finish this week? This month? This year? What are you waiting for?
Look around your office. How many projects are on your desk at present? Which ones have taken up permanent occupancy? I consider my desk to be a high rent district. Squatters aren't welcome. If it stays, it pays.
After coaching from colleague John Tenza (www.coaching2greatness.com) I now awake each morning and ask myself: "What am I going to finish today?"
There's great satisfaction in completing projects, of shipping orders, of finishing manuscripts and closing deals. Conversely there's negative energy that surrounds projects with no end in sight, ones that just seem to hang on. Liberate yourself from these energy drainers. Commit to complete!
Become A Master of Time and Space
According to Tenza, a multidimensional sales trainer, clutter is a killer. When you put things in their rightful place, toss or give away items, you clear your mind as well as your desk and office. The key is to get into action. You must decide to do it!
Completions Not Just for Quarterbacks and Receivers
Strive for completions. Coach Tenza knows: "completions give you freedom from that gnawing stress that something needs to be done.
Each time you complete an existing project you create new space and new energy for yourself." John and I concur: your brain and body will thank you or the successes you will realize through completions.

There are many ways to reach the "end" zone — incremental progress or leaps and bounds. Look anew at your desk, your to-do list and your yearly goals and build your completions.
Congratulations…you've finished this article. What else will you finish today?
