Once you have some experience it is easy to start something.
But it is not hard to keep going until you reach the finish line.
Smart finishers know this.
That is why they first start with understanding what makes something hard.
And then make a plan to tackle that hard part.
If that is not possible, find another path that will take you to a similar outcome for far less effort.
It is smart if you reach there with an easy approach, even if the outcome is not exactly the same that you set out for, but close enough.
And it is smarter to know when to quit, and when to be gritty and when to throw in the towel.
