I'm Bassam Tarazi I created Colipera, am author of The Accountability Effect, co-founded The Nomading Film Festival & The Ignition Lab and was recently the Director of Operations of Omnibuild. I have a mechanical engineering degree and a green MBA. I’ve been fortunate enough to have visited 47 countries. In short, I’m not afraid to try and I’m hell bent on finishing. Why Some People Finish And Others Don't History talks about the people who finished. All-time greats are defined on how they close games out. Developers and inventors are judged on what they produce. Bullet points on a resume are completion’s currency. Framed degrees on a wall prove to the world that you finished something you started. The people you admire, finish. You have food on your table, clothes on your back and toothpaste in the tube because someone somewhere finished something. Ideas and projects are easy to start but it’s the finishing that counts. The shoes are either tied or they are untied. The ship either floats or it doesn’t. Your website is either completed or it’s not. So many of us sit in the unfinished business part of life. Unfinished conversations destroy relationships. Unfinished projects take up space on your computer or in your garage. Unfinished dreams lie wasting away, marooned on Shoulda-Coulda Beach as we wonder what might have been. So why do some people finish and others don’t? Why are some goals reached, while others aren’t? Why do some projects persevere while others fizzle out? What I’ve found out in my own life and in my research of others is that: It’s mindsets, not tactics. Finishing something is all about completing the circle. Most of us get lost along the journey towards our goals because excuses and impediments suffocate us, we start feeling overwhelmed before we can finish. We say we want to do something, we say we should do something but we’re still not doing it. We’ve read enough books and how-to’s when it comes to getting things done. We’ve read the top 10 lists, we’ve done the research and yet, we’re still sitting there, idling. Believe me, I know. I still deal with excuses everyday. We have to understand that our excuses are savvy. They don’t want us to finish. They are betting against us. If we don’t know how they work, if we don’t know their tendencies, they are going to continue to defeat us. It’s time to finish. What Exactly IS Ready. Set. Finish.? Ready. Set.
