“Starting strong is good. Finishing strong is epic.”
When you think about it it is easy to start strong. There is excitement for something new, a focus on starting a new adventure, etc. But after a few weeks or months things slow down. The pace drops off. That’s when the real work, the real power of focus begins.
Without a strong finish, everything else is really meaningless. Well, maybe not meaningless, but certainly greatly diminished. The power of a strong finish doesn’t just impact whatever the current project or initiative is though. It sets the tone for the next one. It builds a platform of performance that you and your team can use to leverage for the next time. Finishing strong today isn’t just about today, it is about the future.
