"Stop starting. Start finishing."
Everyone who has dealt with agile projects knows this phrase.
I have just recently come to the realization of what this really means.
In my life, there are far too many "open threads" (as David Allen calls them) tasks or projects that I have not finished.
And - to my shame - it is often only a few small things left to do.
Which - paradoxically makes it easier to not finish them.
"Ah, it's only a bit to do, I'll do it some other time."
Combine that with a bit of shiny new project syndrome... and you have the mess that is my todo list.
So I am clearing my backlog. How about you?
