Anybody else feel that way? Halfway somewhere, halfway done with something, but yet not there? For me, it’s incredibly frustrating!

They said it’s hard to get started, but I feel that it’s harder to keep up that momentum and keeping going.  Take a look at New Year Resolutions – people make them, get going and get some momentum and then… something happens.
