Do you feel like you (or your coworkers) start a million things, but rarely finish them? Many people think the problem is that they aren’t trying hard enough. So they get up earlier, guzzle energy drinks, or hire a life coach. For many, though, nothing works. In this session, based on the book by the same title, you’ll learn something surprising: The most effective strategies to help people complete their goals are not those that pushed people to work harder. The ones that got people to the finish line did just the opposite— they took the pressure off. If you’re tired of being a chronic starter and want to become a consistent finisher, you have two options: You can continue to beat yourself up and try harder, since this time that will work. Or you can come to this session and give yourself the gift of done.
