from start to finish.

I'm inspired by this article by Gretchen Rubin: Balanced Life -- Finish The Projects You've Started Or Call an End to Them.

I'd like to think that I get a lot done. Not only on a day to day basis, but in life in general. Yet many things seem to lay unfinished. It always seems like there will be a better time to get to them. I have mini books that are half way done, tee shirts that are drawn but not sewn, scarves that are halfway crocheted. I think I get easily distracted at times, and while I was wondering if I was always this way, I came across old journals/ways I used to record my days. I always carried with me a little book & a glue stick. Each day I would write down what I did or planned to do & glue in business cards or other fun stuff. It was a great place to record little things. It prevented me from collecting things in little boxes to be "used later". I'm going to attempt to go back to a daily book - but I can already feel the pressure building and a cop out ahead. It's never too late to start something good, but it seems as though finishing is where I could use a little push. In any case, I think it's just important to record things, in whichever way suits you. Let me know if you have any helpful tips/techniques to record memories. Here are the photos of the pages in the book that inspired me.

While in Tokyo in 2004, I discovered that many of the train stations had a stamping station. Not sure if they have a pseudo passport like thing throughout Japan, but I just thought it was so clever. And I sure was excited I had my book to put the stamps in.
