Today’s word is finish.  The line of the day is “It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish.”  I’m wearing my Team V shirt, which is a marathon group. When I ran that marathon I was going through some tough stuff and I remember my friend Davie T saying to me, “How bad do you want it?”  With friends and family waiting on me at the finish line, I knew I had to finish.

Starting is not most people’s problem; staying, continuing, and finishing is.  Pick something small, give yourself a minute little goal. For example, making three laps up and down the swimming pool, go on a quarter of a mile walk or a half a mile run, pick one and start!

We can all do it.  

Give yourself a goal.  Find an accountability partner and finish something.  

I tell the people that I work with every day, “You never finishing learning.”  Attempt to learn something new every day.

There is one thing that you learn in sports: never give up, fight until the finish.  How bad do you want it? “The game isn’t over until it’s over.” The famous quote by Yogi Bara.

“The last thing you want to do is finish playing or doing anything in your life and wish you had worked harder,” is a quote by my favorite guy in sports, Derek Jeter.  There’s a guy who never gave up!
