Tip 5. Success is measured by what you complete, not by what you begin.

How many items on your to-do list have you begun but never have seemed to be able to finish?

Back in 1984, I started selling telephone systems, door to door, competing against the telephone company. (Back then, there was only one Phone Company and boy, was that a hard sale!)

On one Friday, my sales manager called me into his office as to the number of phone systems I had sold for the week. I proudly replied that I had delivered an unprecedented 12 sales proposals. After commenting that it was great that I had 12 proposals out, my manager again asked me how many I had closed. Gulp!

Working on a lot of things is admirable. The secret to success, however, is getting your work completed.

Finish one, before you begin another one.
