I've always been a big fan of the saying that - If you start right you end right.
But there's one big gotcha with this line of thinking.
And that is - that you have to start right.
So how do you do that?
How do you start right?
I would say it boils down to 3 things.
1. Don't assume anything.
2. Know the why behind the task and
3. Listen, really listen.
While these 3 ingredients of starting right may sound simple, they really require a sense of self awareness to be executed at their full potential.
Self awareness is a whole topic unto itself so let’s not drown in that right now.
So to take 3 things down to 1
I'd say that to start right you need understanding.
And that takes some effort.
And then if you have understanding.
Well, then, you can start right.
Sure, more often than not, you may not be able to see the end goal.
And that’s okay.
Even in those situations, you can still execute with understanding.
Starting right takes practice.
It takes patience.
And it makes crossing the finish line feel that much better.
Start right = End right
