Leaving things Incomplete 02

Wisdom 020

Now move to their kitchen and you will find that many of the grocery items have not been categorized properly and some of them have not been put in the right place even, unwashed dishes are waiting in the sink at the times of the day when they should not be there, some food items which are still lying here and there in kitchen and which should have been put in refrigerator after eating a part of them and many other such scenes. Now look at their house and you will find that even though it is being managed and taken care of, but not as often and not as well as it should have been, their car keys are in the wrong place, their cell phone, TV remote and other such things are lying here and there and many such scenes are easy to observe.

As such a person starts engaging more and more in such practices of leaving things incomplete, with each one of such activities, his conscious mind starts conveying message to his subconscious mind that it is not important to complete things or do jobs in their due or proper ways and once this script is written on his subconscious mind, this problem starts becoming bigger as the subconscious mind of such a person starts sending him various types of inner voices whenever he wants to complete a job or task. Such inner voices may once again contain a message like, ‘leaving the taken off clothes on sofa for a while is all right and there is nothing wrong with it’, ‘what is the point in washing the dishes at once when you can do them later on in a much relaxed way’, ‘why do you need to put the TV remote at a proper place when it is just a remote and nothing big’ and many other such messages which tell him not to bother much and to chill, chill and chill more.

Accordingly this person starts to chill more and sooner than he knows, he is unworthy of doing anything big or taking big things to their proper end as he has now developed a habit of not bothering much about how to give a proper finish to all the jobs and he is satisfied with simply completing a part of the job and as a result, this person will start suffering on the professional front as well as on the personal front. For example, if such a person is a tailor and you have given him a suit to be made and then you go to him on the date given by him, you will most likely get a reply like, ‘the suit is almost finished but the buttons, the zip or other such small things are left and that you should come tomorrow or the day after’. This type of answer certainly irritates you and when such things happen more than once, you may decide not to go to this tailor again as in your opinion, he is not a dependable person and rightly so. It is interesting to note here that such a tailor may have actually finished about 80% of your job by the due date, but just because of his habit of leaving things incomplete, he has lost a client.

Likewise if such a person is your car mechanic and he has promised to deliver your car by 5 in the evening, even if you go to him at 6, he will tell you that either the washing is left or some other small job is left and you should come back in 2-3 hours. If such a person is a tuition teacher, you will find his students complaining that most of the time, he skips one thing or the other from a chapter or a topic and even though he teaches all right but he always delivers less than 100%. It should be noted here that most of such people are very much capable of delivering 100% by virtue of their physical and mental capabilities but they have simply developed this habit of delivering less than 100% which means a habit of leaving things incomplete. Such habit makes them less dependable and sometimes not dependable at all and accordingly they start losing on various fronts of their lives.

Hence it becomes very important to treat and cure this negative habit of leaving things incomplete and I will tell you how to do it effectively, as we move on with this topic.
