I meant to share this earlier and it got lost. I thought this would be an interesting question to discuss especially around New Year's when people make such grandiose claims and declare their hopes and wishes for the coming year: What are the consequences of dreaming "too big"?
This article takes a look at 6 modern ghost "towns" and it means towns in terms of projects. Man-made projects that have ended up... empty.
I have a bag of new yarn and a halfway to halfway finished blanket. This summer I picked up knitting, thought I was going to do it forever and started to knit one of my goddaughters a blanket. Here I am 6 months later, past Christmas and her birthday and the blanket is still sitting in my "knitting bag."
My sister has a 5000 piece jigsaw puzzle she bought and started before Christmas. My mom has 2 empty except for 2 pages scrapbooks she started making when I went off to college. We are all sometimes a bit more ambitious than might be productive. It's not necessarily a bad thing but where exactly do we draw the line to balance resources and investment?
So that leads to my question: What's your "ghost"?
