The Great Unfinished Thing*
becomes a familiar companion after awhile. It travels
every where you travel and pulls the line taut between all your
GREAT DONE and it, The Great UNdone.
Completing the Great Unfinished Thing launches an utterly different
dynamic. The string falls, loose, unpulled. Those who are familiar with
the tight rope walk understand the disconcerting impact of slack string.
This is, in part, some of the answer to, "Why can't I finish things?" In
a peculiar and somewhat disconnected way the Great Unfinished thing
becomes a motivator for completing so many other Things. In an effort
to avoid *TGUT, efforts become so much more focused on the other
end of the string.
Curious: do you have TGUT? And how does it work in your life? Will
you ever "get it done?"
