Things are about to get interesting in your life…as in this message we’ll be taking a deep dive into a high performance execution strategy that once applied can and will radically impact your results.
Let’s start with a few questions…
What if you concentrated only on finishing what you started?
What if you took things step by step — not focusing on anything but what was right in front of you and on doing it to completion?
What if you made finish what you start the dominate philosophy and operating process by which you manage and measure everything you do?
THE PURPOSE OF PROCESS
In the chaos of life and business, process provides a way. A way to turn a complex project or challenging goal into something simple. Not that simple is easy.
But it is easier.
Allow me to explain…
Let’s say you’ve got yourself an ambitious goal or a beast of project. Don’t focus on that. Instead, divide the ultimate outcome into smaller pieces and conquer each step.
Simply do what you need to do right now with excellence and bring this one task to a finish. And then move on to the next task or step. Follow the finish what you start process and let the big prize take care of itself.
The road to being a successful entrepreneur, surgeon, mechanic, salesperson, teacher or coach is just that, a road. And you travel along a road in steps or what some may call mile markers.
Excellence is a matter of steps. Excel at this present one, then that one and then the one after that.
The finish what you start process is exclusively this — embrace the task at hand, take it one step at a time, not getting distracted by anything else. Act with excellence…and stop only when you bring the task to a finish. Repeat.
Trusting the process is ALL about the discipline of finishing.
Finishing phone calls.
Finishing sales calls.
Finishing the smallest task you have in front of you and finishing it well.
