Crossing the finish line might not be a victory, but it surely isn’t a defeat!
Is crossing the finish line a victory? You know when you decide to do a project and things go wrong? First your expectations turn out to be bad, then equipment start to jam, then people get mean and this domino effect hits upon your self confidence. And this self doubt is a black hole sucking all your energy. One of my rule is to cross the finish line whatever the circumstances and avoiding a black hole of self doubt saves huge amount of energy.
I don’t go for a victory, but as Bobby Fisher said, I do everything to avoid a defeat.
I know this is the foundation of my career that my customers appreciate and depend on.
