Don’t treat your career marathon like a sprint

Redefining your career, starting a new business, and improving your life are all “marathons.” You can’t try to sprint to the finish line and hope to achieve sustainable success.

I’ve made this mistake in the past too. We all want success as quickly as possible. It is so tempting to sprint right out of the gate, since we’re full of energy with any new venture or desired change.

But, lasting change and sustainable success requires a consistent, methodical process. It won’t come easy. It won’t be quick. But nothing that lasts ever is.
