It’s not how you START, but how you FINISH”
Jordan Speith started the final round of the 2017 British Open on Sunday with a 3 shot lead and had only 5 holes left to play in the championship. He had lost the lead by one stroke to his opponent Matt Kuchar. Jordan had a terrible start and was not playing championship level golf, BUT then he catches fire by scoring a 5 under over next 4 holes to win another major championship. Jordan Spieth finished strong!
In my new book, Find Your Lane, Chapter One is titled “it’s not how you start, but how you finish” which revolves around defining moments and the importance of making adjustments for success. We all have what I call defining moments. One of those defining moments for me came when I was having a conversation with my wife early in our marriage about our future. We were driving down the highway one afternoon on our way home from visiting our family when my wife asked me if I was planning on finishing college. I had started my journey toward a bachelor’s degree about four years earlier when I decided to leave after my freshman year to get married and start a family. Now, two children later, she was curious if I had been thinking about the future or was just going to accept the current situation with no plan in mind. That was a defining moment for me because I realized that my future was in my control…
As we drive past the midway mark in 2017, are you accepting the status quo or planning to make adjustments for a strong finish? Some examples might include:
- If you have been managing your employee relocation in house, maybe this is the time to finally engage a partner for a better experience for you and your teammates.
- Are you personally wanting to complete a certification that you have been wanting to achieve to elevate your career? Now may be the time to include on your list of items to finish in 2017!
- Maybe you made a list of goals and haven’t looked at them since the beginniing of the year because life just got in the way. This may be a a defining moment for you to pick up the list to get started on achieving some of these goals.
“Life comes down to a few moments, and this is one of them.” (Bud Fox, Wall Street)
Call to action: What is your defining moment for 2017? Pull over and park to reflect. Maybe this is your time to reach out to a colleague to find ways for you to make an adjustment for a strong finish in 2017!
