Finish lines have a powerful allure to them.

They inspire us to begin important journeys and give us strong motivation to go after our goals.

However, sometimes we misinterpret which parts of our lives need finish lines, so we approach everything the same way and wind up overloaded.

If this sounds like you, there’s a way you can find a cadence you can sustain as you pursue your goals all while reserving essential energy.


In this episode, I’ll reveal how using finish lines the wrong way can drain you mentally and physically. You’ll discover how to mentally reposition yourself so you can attack your goals and achieve them with the same vigor but at a sustained, healthy pace.

Listen in…

  • Why finish lines have a powerful allure (and how they help drive us towards our goals) (4:46)
