Have you ever heard someone say, “I’m an idea person… I like to start new things, but I’m not the person who finishes them?” You know who does finish things? Winners. Starting is not hard, or interesting, or worth celebrating. Day 92 of your new exercise program, that’s celebration time. Year 6 in your new career, that’s party time.

On this week’s show, we’ll talk about getting stuff done, finding your dream job, and focusing on stacking successes (not failures).

What You’ll Learn:

  • Why you can achieve more by lowering (not raising) your goals
  • Why “fun” is so important on the way to your goals
  • Why it’s not always helpful to let others know (publicly) your goals and ambitions
  • How to start with baby steps as you move toward progressively bigger things
