Friday Quote: On Finishing


I went for years not finishing anything. Because, of course, when you finish something you can be judged...

Some people by temperament can live more happily with open ended unfinished things. However, sadly, this quote is too true. Fear is the author of procrastination.

Now that is the truth! And how powerful is our fear of being judged? Thank you for posting this.

Connie--A great many things I prefer to have open ended, so, yes, I sure hear you!

David--So how does an actor leave a performance unfinished? Inquiring minds...

Steph--Pretty powerful, unfortunately, or at least it sure can be, can't it? Powerful enough to cripple creativity, that's for sure. (And, you're welcome. Thanks for commenting.)
