You don’t have to finish something to get it off your mind. What you do need to do is:

   (1) clarify what the final successful outcome is,
   (2) decide the very next action required to move toward that outcome, and
   (3) put reminders of the outcome and next action in a system you trust.

Until you do those things, your mind still has that job of deciding and remembering and reminding. “In a system you trust” is important–if you know you won’t look at your reminders when you could actually use them, your head will still keep that job.
