    Its Kinda Like a Race

    The point of a race is to start and finish and to finish the fastest you can. Not everything that you start has to be finnished fast. Take time. I always feel good when I finished a project it may have taken me a long time but when it's done I get to admier it.

    Off Course I Do

    Every time I start something, it is my duty, my obligation, my mission to finish whatever it is that I started. Which is precisely why I never start anything.
