When starting a project, it’s helpful to work backwards from the finish line.
Finish lines indicate how hard to push.
Finish lines give us an indication what we should prepare for. (Is this a sprint or a marathon?)
The problem is we struggle with following through with consist effort until the end.
Being tired at mile 23 of 24 is totally different from a 5K.
The question then becomes How will you finish?
Finish lines are useful until they get in the way.
Because the goal is to never finish. The goal is to keep playing as long as you can and as best you can.
Finishing a goal is different than arriving to a destination.
