2012: The Year of Finish

Jon Acuff is one of my favorite bloggers. I’ve been reading him for a few years on his Stuff Christians Like website where I learned about metrosexual worship leaders and unnecessary scarves. He’s quite funny but he’s also got quite the thought-provoking side as I learned when I read his latest book, “Quitter“.

This guy finds a way to get into your head without you realizing it. I find myself repeating phrases like “discipline begets discipline” and “the selfishness of 5 a.m.” His most recent foray into my psyche discussed how he’s great at starting things, but not finishing them.


Jon has dubbed 2012 as “Finish Year” and has issued a challenge to his readers to post a list of things that they want to finish this year.  Since I’m a great starter and tend to peter out by March, I thought this was a great idea.  I created my “Finish List” and tweeted it.

But here’s the thing…I’m lousy at the “lone wolf” thing and need support.  So I’m trolling for “Finishers” to join me this year.

Is there something that you’ve been wanting to accomplish? Do you want to finish what you start this year? What would be on your Finish List for 2012?

Let’s team up together and make 2012 a year that we finish well. Post your lists and your comments. I would love to hear from you.

  1. I’ve procrastinated even making the list of things to resolve to do …. I wonder how long it will take me to finish the list of things I need to finish ? Like converting my garage to a play room, planning a yard sale, planting some flowers in my front yard ….. I think I might try this with you .
