Having trouble with execution?

Posted by Sri Subramanian (@whosissri) on March 3, 2012


It is always so wonderful in the beginning. We have the perfect vision of what we can achieve, and we are raring to go. Then, we get to the middle, and we can only see the dry, boring hard work, the compromises that sully our vision, and our energy wanes. We are taught to keep at it, and stay determined.

Unfortunately, big goals are not accomplished by gritting our teeth, and working through the middle. Big goals are accomplished by keeping the passion alive. The key is learning to finish midway, so you can start often.

A good singer knows to complete each musical phrase.

A good comedian knows to deliver each punch line.

A good dancer knows to end each spin, face to the audience, so she can start the next.

Are you focused on finishing your turn, or finishing your dance?
