    Charlie Gilkey and Jay Izso, A New Direction

    Image result for charlie gilkeySo often getting started is easier than finishing.  And then there are times when we get stuck because we started to many things or cannot get them out of our head.  We all have said something to the effect of…”I have all these ideas in my head, but I can’t get them out” or “I have so many things I want to do, but I just don’t seem to have the time to do them”, or “I am overwhelmed at all the things I have to do, I have no idea how I am going to do them”.  Everyone of these statements have one thing in common: We are frustrated and they are not done.  We sit and talk about them, but they just hang out there forever, and then before long, because time moves faster than we think, we never get to them, and they either go away, or they become someone else’s issue, because we left a project partially finished that now someone has to clean up our mess.  Is there an answer or should you stay frustrated?

    Good news friends!  There is an answer!  And this week on A New Direction (AND) author Charlie Gilkey  ( with us a small part of his outstanding, practical, motivational, no holds barred, book START FINISHING: How to Go from Idea to Done.  In this episode of AND we uncover the difference between ideas and projects, what keeps us from getting them done how to make SMART goals (yes SMART is an acronym), why have your Success Pack of people is important to completion, and how 15 minutes of distraction can throw an entire year off track.  You are going to really enjoy the insights from Charlie and his book…and then you will begin to START FINISHING!  Enjoy.
