Walking on the trail the other night close to dark I greeted the only other person still walking.  She turned around laughing and said, “Did you just say good morning?” I stopped, turned around laughing and said, “I sure could have.” She answered, “You definitely said good morning or else I would never have turned around.” We cracked up.  Charlotte introduced herself and asked if she could join me on the walk down.

It was one of those serendipitous conversations as we had many life experiences in common and favorite places on the east coast.  She’s a writer and told me she is a fan of completing and in fact invented a word year ago when she needed the impetus to complete things—finishiative!!!

The two words are defined as follows:

Initiative: the first step, the act of setting a process in motion.

Finishiative: the last step, the act of completing a project or mission.
