Finish Something

Benjamin Lee is not only a facebook friend, but a friend in real life. And a preaching colleague.

Ben often posts encouraging, motivating and action-focused thoughts, which if applied would help us all increase our productivity, improve our lives, and grow spiritually.

Here’s a quote Ben posted from James Clear.

“Finish something. Anything. Stop researching, planning, and preparing to do the work and just do the work. It doesn’t matter how good or how bad it is. You don’t need to set the world on fire with your first try. You just need to prove to yourself that you have what it takes to produce something. There are no artists, athletes, entrepreneurs, or scientists who became great by half-finishing their work. Stop debating what you should make and just make something.”

“Stop counting days. Transform your mind,” Ben advises.

From “How to stop worrying and start living,” Ben shared these 4 “Good working habits that will help prevent fatigue and worry.”

1. Clear your desk of all papers except those relating to the immediate problem at hand.

2. Do things in order of importance.

3. When you face a problem, solve it then and there if you have the facts necessary to make a decision. Don’t keep putting off decisions.

4. Learn to organize, deputize, and supervise.

And an often posted piece of health advice, Ben says, “Get up and workout!”

These positive admonitions remind me of three verses.

“Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might” (Eccl. 9:10)

“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ” (Col. 3:23-24).

“Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord” (Rom. 12:11)

In summary, “finish something.”

–Ken Weliever, The Preacherman
