A good time to finish up old tasks.
However, you know what? I’m going to take the contrarian point of view and ask WHY? Sometimes we start something and discover that it was the wrong thing, but because we’ve invested time, money, and/or effort, we don’t think we can just let it go. We’ve been taught to believe that you must always finish what you start. So we tuck it up on a shelf, push it to the back of the closet, or wear a path in the carpet going around it. Instead, what we should do is acknowledge that it’s not ever going to be completed and let it go. Give it away, take it apart, trash it. Rather than burn time and energy feeling guilty about that project you never intend to finish, just admit you won’t and move on.
