On Starting and Finishing

An elderly neighbour said to me yesterday, that his people have a saying; in every endeavour, two things are paramount. One is getting started. The other is finishing the endeavour.

I have been reflecting on this and somehow, agree. Beginning an endeavour requires enormous courage. But then, seeing the endeavour through to the end is more tasking. But tasking as it is, finishing could be very exciting and rewarding. The excitement and reward associated with finishing, sometimes constitute the fuel for sustaining the momentum till the end.
