A line drawn with the word start on one side and finish on the other.

I’ve learned that finishing a marathon isn’t just an athletic achievement. It’s a state of mind; a state of mind that says anything is possible.  ~ John Hanc

from Runner’s World Daily Quote email

In order to finish a 26.2 mile race you have to run the first mile.  And, in order to write a book you have to write the first chapter. 

Jill Weatherholt’s recent post provides some great suggestions for how you can stay focused on your task and be efficient in accomplishing your short term goals, in this case writing.

Finishing a marathon requires focus, effort, and dedication. If we apply the same approach to everything that we do in life – our writing, photography, whatever our interest – we’ll be amazed at the results.
