The Best Way To Start Is To Finish

Always start at the finish.

Survey the land. Stand on Mount Nebo and check out the place you’re heading. What is the final product going to look like? What if this complex, knotted ball of yarn were a simple, untangled strand right now?

What would that look like?

This is way architects create blueprints and engineers make prototypes and writers make outlines. We need to know what this thing is going to look like. It must be taken from the nebulous and brought into the tangible.

What will this look and feel like when we’re finished?

So map out the route of your climb from the top of the mountain.

Then parachute down and execute the slow, arduous, and thrilling climb back to the top.
