What mental roadblocks are holding me back from finishing this? — Odds are, they’re the same ones — analysis paralysis, fear of embarrassment, fear of negative feedback — that will do even more to hold me back from starting something.
Where does this work fit into my priorities? — Completing old work should remove a stress point or obligation, or it should make starting new work simpler.
How long will it take me to complete this? — Since my main goal is to begin something new, I want to tackle something I can finish in a reasonable amount of time.
