Episode 85: Motivation Monday, FINISH the job.
In this episode of the Brawn Body podcast, Dan discusses the importance of HOW YOU FINISH whatever endeavor you’re on. In our world of instant gratification, it’s easier than ever to START something. But does that matter? No - nobody cares how you start, everyone wants to see you finish. Anyone can show up at the starting line for a marathon - not everyone can cross the finish line. Make sure you finish whatever journey you’re currently on.
