Importance of follow-through

In Uncategorized on March 8, 2010 at 8:46 pm

A lot of people get easily excited about a new concept. Its like the shiny new band wagon. They want to get on it, drive it and benefit from it. However, the attraction lasts for a short time. Once the shine wears off, people move on to the next big thing. But, success requires perseverance. Lets explore a few examples in this article:

  • Have you blogged in the past and discontinued? Unless there are new contents, how do you get new hits?
  • Have you started a project and left it incomplete? How about your garage clean-up planned last spring? How many new improvement ideas do you have sitting in your to-do list? How many have you completed more than 50% already and then your priorities changed?
  • Do you make focused effort to go to networking events, but never follow-up with the people you meet?

Unless you follow-through and complete the project, you cannot fully benefit. If you committed to someone that you will do A by next week, you will gain credibility by delivering on that. If you have already completed 50% on a project, can you work with someone else to get the remaining done? This will benefit the business while you can still focus on your new priority. You have to make adjustments to your execution as you go. But persevering through the obstacles will help you to succeed.
