“Only one thing counts; that you’re a finisher.”
“The…” REAL “…Only Thing That Matters”
was repeated often enough by my Grandpa and has even popped up in lyrics as in: “Fun Boy Three — It Ain’t What You Do — It’s The Way That You Do It
“It Does Not Matter What You Do — It Only Matters How You Do It.”
Finishing is optional and a matter of perspective. Many times it is only necessary to start something and to have ti finished by someone else, or by the next generation — when the present generation does not possess the smarts to finish it. Examples given: Nikola Tesla and Albert Einstein.
If, what You intend to do can be finished by You, go for it. Other possibilities do exist, especially in a cooperative way where it’s not about the ego, but the progress of the whole.
