    We all have them. Little chores or looming hurdles that you know have to be done, you have been struggling with them, or plain avoiding them all together.

    It's there, in the back of your mind, just nagging away at you like Tango's first wife. You know you need to knuckle down and just do it instead of procrastinating, but it's just easier to look the other way.

    Well, this thread is for when you finally can't put it off any longer and do the damn thing!!

    Today I finished my 40 hours of prep course for my PMP Certification and spent all morning justifying the last 8 years of my working life in hours spent on 22 or 23 Project Management Principlies for registration for camp in May.

    I am the first from the company that has been selected, and given the shortest time frame to get everything done, so I have been STRESSED out lately.

    But it's finally done and it feels GREAT!!!

    Now I just have to worry about the 4 day mind numbing parrot session followed by the 4 hour 200 question exam. :eek::eek:


    So, what's been on your back burner that you finally finished??

    Well, I actually finished it a few years ago , but is always a work in progress.
    I bought this 79 Sportster as a basket case for $500. I immediately tore it completely down and had the frame powdercoated. Then it sat in my garage for about 6 months and I never touched it, but it gnawed at me everynight asI walked past the pile of parts.
    Had some friends over one night, drinking beer and smoking out in the garage, and one of them said "when the eff are you ever going to finish that bike?".
    I guess that was all it took. Next day I took the heads and jugs down to a local machine shop and dropped off for the work I couldn't do. 3 months and 2 grand later I was riding it!
    Now I can't find time to ride much. Gotta work on that next!

    "Glad I got that finished....FINALLY!"

    Well, I say that just about anytime I finish anything, the dishes, laundry, mopping the floor, etc. :eek:
