Finishing things

One of the goals I set for myself this year is to finish things. I have a tendency to start something and then before I finish it, I move onto something else. Anyone else do this? I do it all the time and it gets pretty frustrating because then I end up with lots of unfinished projects and when I go back to finish them, I've lost my momentum.

Last night I finished the book The Power of Starting Something Stupid. It was a great book, but I was more proud of the fact I finished the book! I found the trick to be reading a little bit each day at the same time in the same place. I also promised myself a little reward that if I finish it, I can get a new book. Sounds like something simple, but I plan to use the same technique for getting more projects done.
What do you have a hard time finishing? How do you keep the momentum going?

Ha, I have a difficult time finishing everything :) I haven't figured it out at all, the only thing I'm really good at it procrastination :)

I'm such a big believer in being a finisher . . . however, much easier said than done. I've got about 15 projects going right now. It's good to know I'm in the same boat with others.

I totally agree. Much easier said than done!
