This is day 17 of the Writer’s Circle challenge: a quote I try to live by
“Start as you mean to finish”
Some people attribute this tidbit to Steven Covey but I have also read that it is based on an old Quaker proverb. Either way, it’s good advice.
I keep it in mind with everything I do, in life and in business and you know what? It’s held true.
If I want to be paid a certain way (or at all) for my work, I am clear about it up front in the negotiation.
If I want Nikki to behave a certain way when we are going to an event, I am clear about the rules before we even leave.
If I want to eat all the cookies… oh wait… never mind that one.
But you get where I’m going with this, right?
It’s a guideline, a way to stay the path when you feel yourself going astray.
My other favourite quote?
