Many of the projects that I have been working on over the last several months are coming up on their finish lines. I’m excited to be able to put these things out into the world so people can use them. Of course these finish lines are really just new starting lines. But isn’t that the case for every finish line?
Think about the Olympic athlete. They train with that finish line in mind for years. But once the race is over they are going to have to start something new. They can start to train for the next race. They can start to think about life after the olympics.
Think about professional athletes who are facing retirement. What’s next? They’ve spent all this time in their sport. When do they start thinking about life after football?
It would seem that the people who end up being truly successful are those who look at their finish lines and are able to think about what they are going to do after their cross the finish line.
I love this song by Steve Taylor – Finish Line
yeah maybe it’s a little cheesy but the 12 year old me totally dug this tune, and when I got Steve Taylors autograph I was pretty stoked!
