Key Takeaways  

~ The beginning and endings matter a lot. As human beings, we remember the beginnings and the endings more than we remember what happened in between. [14:13] 

~ In coaching, particularly for people who’re leading or growing a business or on a deadline for results that are required, they don’t want to wait six months of coaching to feel like they are making progress. Usually, by the time someone wants to go get a coach, they are ready to have the results yesterday. [16:52] 

~ When we have mental clarity, it actually solves a lot of problems that might not on the surface seem connected. [22:24] 

~ “We have influence, but we can’t start to influence things until we actually know what we want and how we want to influence it.” [26:17] 

~ Very few things are gained in a day, particularly if you’re building a skillset or something that really matters. I often think about compounding. The idea of investing effort over time. It’s not going to be won in a day, but I know if I start today, when I look back a year from now, I’ll be in an entirely different place because of the efforts I started today. [36:22] 

~ Getting started is critical, and starting at a level that doesn’t immediately turn you off. Once you get started you have to figure out how to keep going. [39:04]
