I can’t stop rediscovering the importance of finishing with vigor.
This applies to almost anything.
The last words of a deep talk with someone.
The last rep of a training session.
The last, climactic part of a book.
The finish line of a race.
Hiking the last leg of a mountain trail.
The end is so important. There’s some kind of primal ecstasy from roaring through, full speed, full passion, to the end of it.
Never plod at the end. Don’t drag something out. If you’re gonna do it, commit and hit it hard, do it right, until you’re done, and especially right when you’re finishing. Otherwise quit early.
End with the beginning in mind.
The way you perform your last rep is the primer for the first rep of your next session. If you let your form go, you tell your body, your mind, your soul that it’s okay to fail. That it’s not that important to do things right every time.
I’d rather end it early while it’s good than slop through to mediocrity.
This applies to nearly everything in life. Where have you found it to be true? I’d like to know where you’ve applied this to!
