Ep. 24: 5 Reasons People Start But Don’t Finish

Bruce LundBlog, Podcast, Solopreneur MovementLeave a Comment

It’s not how you start. It’s how you finish.

Most things in life are about probability. This week’s podcast focuses on helping you FINISH what you start.

There are five reasons why I believe people don’t see something through to their conclusion.

  1. Don’t know WHY they started in the first place
    a. Not a strong conviction or dominant focus
  2. Don’t have a plan in place
    a. Aren’t being held accountable or have clear benchmarks
  3. Get bored
    a. We like new things. ADHD world. Monkey-mind.
    b. Business should almost be boring. Robotic. Check the boxes.
  4. Harder or takes longer
    a. It’s almost always going to be harder or take longer.
    b. If your dreams don’t scare you, then they aren’t big enough.
  5. Not a clear end date
    a. Should have a finish line. Benchmarks can’t keep changing or being redefined.
    b. Shorter bursts (90-days).
