Ending is good


At the end of the project. After all the excitement and the misery. When the shouting is over and the arguments are settled and the blind alleys have been fully explored and left behind in the dark – at the end of things … it feels good.

Good – with the satisfaction of a mountain scaled with everyone safely arrived in the valley beyond.

Good – that we did what we set out to do, or didn’t. Either way, we gave it our best shot and everyone involved learned something about something, and maybe that something was themselves.

Good – that, even if it’s just for a moment, we have the joy of some clear decks and the change to look unfettered at the next horizon.

Skippy strategy: Recognise and remember that ending is good. Next time, deep in the woods, remind yourself that positive or negative … the end worth it, and good.
