A good friend of mine, Mark Jackson from Leverage Your Life, and I were talking a few weeks ago about the concept of finishing strong when it comes to your goals.
We discussed the illustration of when you are running a race. Coaches tell you to finish strong and run through the finish line instead of running to the finish line. Most of us have seen the races when the leader of the race begins to let up when they see the finish line only to be overtaken by the person behind them who continued to push hard through the entire race and through the finish line.
See Mark’s post below via Leverage Your Life here.
Over the past few days and weeks, I’ve heard several people say things such as, “I’ll start that next year.” or “I’ll wait until the holidays are over.” My questioning to that is Why? Why wait? Why not finish the year strong and continue on into the new year. Why not get a jump start on your goals? Imagine how much further ahead you could be if you start right now.
Don’t put off for tomorrow what you can do today.
My challenge to you is to start now. If your goal is to eat better and exercise more, or whatever it may be, there is no better time to start than the present.
