Finish strong

We had another track meet yesterday.

A lot of places were traded in the last 10 feet. (Not always 1st/2nd.)

Most kids ran hard all the way through.

But a fair number of kids pulled up before the finish line. Missed out on a last-minute take or were taken just before the line.

As anyone who has watched a game with me can attest, this is one of my biggest pet peeves with baseball. So many guys don’t run all the way through the bag.

But I got to thinking (of course) that it’s a metaphor for so many other things. How many projects have I started and not finished? Or finished half-assed?

Perhaps I need to limit my projects to those that I can finish (in terms of time, other resources, and interest). Commit to those I start.

Run all the way through. Literally and as metaphor.
