Don’t aim for the finish line

  • By Alan Knott-Craig
  • August 8, 2017

Aim 10% past the finish line.

Deadline for Friday? Aim for Thursday.

Target of R10million profit? Aim for R11million.

Want to wake up 6am every day? Wake up 5am.

Need to 50% to pass your exam? Study for 60%.

Whatever the goal is, add 10%.

That way you don’t slack off before the finish line.

Instead, cross the line running at 100%.

Maybe you think, “Why add 10%? Isn’t that wasted effort?”

You’re right, it is wasted effort. Except when you fail.

When you fail you’ll ask yourself, “Why didn’t I give it an extra 10%?”

Rather invest too much effort than fail.

Aim 10% past the finish line.
