You know why I built a business?
After I built another business?
Why I built a business in between running LinkResearchTools?
I even built this software startup called Impactana. I built it up, marketed it and then after a pivot, reduced it and formally shut it down.
That was one startup. The rest, I’ve finished.
Want to succeed in business? Here’s what you need to do
Because it's not about having ideas, it's not about starting it, it's not about being the smartest or brightest or fastest...
It's about finishing.
Getting things done means completing things.
The BIG mistake we make
The one biggest mistake in all of our lives, not just business lives, is not sticking to a plan and then giving up.
Giving up, quitting is what kills all the joy… It’s what kills all the effort.
If you make a conscious decision to stop doing something that you already started but then you stopped selling a product- that's a different story.
But giving up halfway… whether it’s your video logs, blog, business, going after the girl you want, whatever, is quitting.
That's the opposite of getting things done.
