Productivity Meets Purpose--Start Finishing the Work That Matters Most. How much of your time and attention lately has been focused on things that truly matter to you? Most people's honest answer is: not enough. The joy-producing, difference-making ideas are always waiting--for when the time is right, when the current project is over, when there is a little more money. Those ideas are waiting for someday. The trouble is someday never comes on its own. Start Finishing provides a system for transforming your ideas into projects and shows you how to address the challenges you face by giving each project the time, energy, and attention it needs.

- Build your success pack of supporters, guides, peers, and beneficiaries
- Finish strong--celebrate, review, and ride the momentum to your next goal Start finishing your best work and create your future, one completed project at a time.
