Starting vs Finishing

Someone posted on Reddit: "[NeedAdvice] I never finish anything I start and no matter how many times I try, I always fail"

I'll leave my answer here in case someone else finds it useful:

First, it's ok to NOT finish stuff. Trying new things is exciting (dopamine release) BUT looks like you are looking for something more meaningful. I can provide some advice as I have been through this in the past and have learned about the creative process.

I think your initial attempts at different stuff are valuable and may give you some hints about what worked and what didn't. You can re-frame your experience, not label yourself as a quitter (labels are self-fulfilling) and just work on your stuff.
