People worry about starting out right. Starting on a good note increases your chances of moving in the right direction, but it’s not the only factor. By focusing on finishing what you start, you’ll soon find yourself getting much more done, and others will start noticing your results too. When you focus on how you finish, you’ll still work HARD, but it helps to translate that extra effort into tangible results.

In this episode of the David Spisak Show, David holds a coaching call to discuss why finishing is more important than starting. “The reason why it’s the only thing that matters is that that’s what you’re gonna remember most because it shows you that you can finish what you start.”

Being in the last quarter of 2022! It is shocking when you look back at your year from when it started until now and see what you have been able to accomplish, what you left halfway, and what you never got a start on.

Before you jump into the new year, you need to finish this old year strong, and you must do so.

How you begin doesn’t matter; what matters is how you end. It really all depends on how you finish. Our deeds and achievements will be our legacy after we are gone. Our actions and inactions during life will reveal who we are. The good news is that our performance at the end can make up for any rocky beginnings. A strong ending cancels out a weak start.

The problem is that a lot of times, when we get to adulthood at some point, we intellectually stagnate. We lose our motivation; we lose our inspiration. We’re no longer committed. We’ve kind of given up. We’ve fallen into a pattern of settling, and Suddenly we settle; we are willing to accept anything.

Everything changes at the end. “If you’re having the best day of your life or the worst day of your life, just give it some time. It’ll change. It’s typically way more complicated than it needs to be. and it’s always us that makes it, so our insights come outside the people., it’s always people that do the same things.”

David cautions that while trying to make things change for your good, “Let them waste their time. Never let anybody else waste your time. Your time is not replaceable. It’s their choice if they want to do it, but it’s your choice just as well that you don’t want to do it. And when it comes to offloading things, it’s important because if you starve your distractions, you feed your focus.”

Have you ever thought about that? Think about you having the focus on one side, and I have distractions on the other, and they’re connected? So as I decrease my distractions from a hundred to zero, my focus will go up. If I feed my distractions, my focus is gonna go down. And if you think about it, I talked about choices.

Every choice comes with a second. You’ve also decided to starve your focus if you feed the distraction. You can only provide one. So you gotta choose which one.
