Here’s a habit worth creating…
Always Finish Strong!
The last part of any project, task or race…the final ten percent is in many ways the most critical, the most character defining, and also the most taxing.
The last ten percent…getting the project or ball across the finish line has a way of thinning the herd and separating the professionals from the amateurs.
The commitment required to finish strong is mentally and physically demanding and the temptation to settle for good enough is often too appealing for most to resist.
That’s the critical difference between the amateur and the professional.
• Professionals never settle for anything less than their best.
• Professionals never stop until the job is done right.
• Professionals always finish strong.
In virtually every field, there’s a ridiculous amount of work put into the last ten percent of quality.
This is where you truly sweat the small stuff as quality is about doing all things with love, care and attention to detail.
Finishing the last ten percent strong is the signal we look for…it’s the calling card of greatness.
Following through on the last ten percent is the way we communicate care and expertise and professionalism.
If all you’re doing is the standard amount, or settling for good enough, then all you’re going to get is the standard compensation. That’s all you really deserve…mere crumbs.
The hard part of finishing strong is the last ten percent, or even the last one percent, but it’s the hard part because everyone is busy doing the easy part.
Most people are not hard acts to follow as they embrace the false and highly compromised belief that finishing the last ten percent strong isn’t worth the effort.
How wrong and casualty creating that belief is.
The secret to finishing every project, task, race or year strong is to raise your standards…to settle for nothing but your best effort…and to stop only when the job is done right. That’s the ethos of a true professional.
