Everyone knows this, but so often we get caught up and stuck in the "doing", and where we're going gets lost somewhere along the way.
A couple of years ago I was excited to be working on a new project. One of the first discussions I had with my business partner was what the process would be to wind up said project. How will we know when we're finished and how will the business be wound up? Well this project came to fruition, we worked it well and then wound the business when it had run its course. It was a true testament to the philosophy of "starting with the end in mind".
