Which is Easier — Starting or Finishing?

"Don’t be upset by the results you didn’t get by the work you didn’t do."

Gary Ryan Blair

While you wrestle with that question for a minute, think about how much is at stake.

Your reputation, earning ability, self-esteem and overall sense of worth.

If you don’t finish what you start…you’ll only experience the agony of defeat…never the thrill of victory.

If you can’t find it within yourself to get your goals across the finish line…you’ll condemn yourself to a life of pain, regret and disappointment.

If you make promises and commitments to yourself and others but do not honor them…you’ll have given people no reason to trust you, much less yourself.

Obviously there is a lot on the line here…and that’s precisely why you need to absorb the magnitude of this next line…

You don’t get paid for starting…You only get paid for finishing.

Imagine your sink is broken.

You hire a plumber to fix it.

Half-way through he stops and says…

Hey, I don’t really feel like doing this today…I think I am not inspired to fix your broken sink. Sorry, dude.

Boom! He’s gone…and never to return.


What do all of these people have in common?

And the answer is…

They are all in the same business.

I can hear you saying, “An attorney and electrician are not in the same business!”

You’re wrong.

"You don’t get paid for starting…You only get paid for finishing, for delivering results."

We’re all in the business of delivering results…of finishing what we start.

Clients don’t come to you for legal services, electrical services, or any other ‘services’ you offer.

They hire you because they have a problem that needs to be solved.

They want a result that only you can deliver…and they want it now.

Once again, you don’t get paid for starting…you only get paid for finishing, for delivering results.


Your results serve as judge, jury and executioner of your performance.

This truth applies the same exact way to a sales person’s ability to meet or exceed quota…

To a student’s ability to maintain good grades in school…

To a Coach’s ability to build a winning record…

As well as to a parent’s ability to raise strong, healthy, self-confident children.

This is a truth without an exception as we all get measured by the quality and quantity of results we deliver.

What would that mean to you? If, instead of starting goals or projects, then letting them fade away — eventually making you nervous about starting anything at all — what if you had a system for finishing everything you started.

Better yet, what impact would it have on your results if you had access to the strategies, structure and accountability you need to quickly close any performance gaps and to always finish strong?
