Lately, I’ve been making major strides in my motivation, performance and (personal) sense of satisfaction. How ? Simple. I started putting in place a core set of personal performance measurement techniques that tell me when to keep pushing onwards – and when to cut my losses.
Up until a few months ago, I found myself consistently torn between two camps. On the one hand, there is the “it ain’t over ’till the fat lady sings” camp. They believe that the game isn’t over until you call it, and there is always another step worth taking. They believe that – for the most part – we are all just one step away from success. That most people give up one step shy of their big breakthrough. And they believe that good things will come to those who – not wait but – persist.
