Year after year, readers pulled me aside at events and said, “I’ve never had a problem starting. I’ve started a million things, but I never finish them. Why can’t I finish? According to studies, 92 percent of New Year’s resolutions fail. You’ve practically got a better shot at getting into Juilliard to become a ballerina than you do at finishing your goals. For years, I thought my problem was that I didn’t try hard enough. So I started getting up earlier. I drank enough energy drinks to kill a horse. I hired a life coach and ate more superfoods. Nothing worked, although I did develop a pretty nice eyelid tremor from all the caffeine. It was like my eye was waving at you, very, very quickly. Then, while leading a thirty-day online course to help people work on their goals, I learned something surprising: The most effective exercises were not those that pushed people to work harder. The ones that got people to the finish line did just the opposite— they took the pressure off. Why? Because the sneakiest obstacle to meeting your goals is not laziness, but perfectionism. We’re our own worst critics, and if it looks like we’re not going to do something right, we prefer not to do it at all. That’s why we’re most likely to quit on day two, “the day after perfect”—when our results almost always underper­form our aspirations. The strategies in this book are counterintuitive and might feel like cheating. But they’re based on studies conducted by a university researcher with hundreds of participants. You might not guess that having more fun, eliminating your secret rules, and choosing something to bomb intentionally works. But the data says otherwise. People who have fun are 43 percent more successful! Imagine if your diet, guitar playing, or small business was 43 percent more suc­cessful just by following a few simple principles. If you’re tired of being a chronic starter and want to become a consistent finisher, you have two options: You can continue to beat yourself up and try harder, since this time that will work. Or you can give yourself the gift of done.

A new superfast space plane that skirts the edge of space, inbound on a two-hour jaunt to Hong Kong, collides with a satellite. Metals groan as if in pain. The aircraft slowly overturns. Suddenly the emergency floor lights extinguish. All manner of objects bounce and sail though the cabin. In the darkness some debris strikes passengers. Screams of injury join shouts of terror. Various tourists claw at their restraints, freed, they fall away into darkness. Bounding travelers kick, and swing their arms; scratching the bodies of other sightseers. Indescribable howls fill the fuselage. Deafening, hysterical shrieks eject from every throat. One, clear, horrified voice rises above the others. "GOD! GOD. OH GOD." The terrified screamer could be male or female, extreme fear reshapes the shouter's larynx. This is the ultimate roller-coaster ride. The grinding metal begins to sound musical like the screech of an electric guitar. The space plane lurches into the vastness of the stellar realm. With fuel exhausted and onboard life-gases spewing from its hull, the space plane drifts and twists through space. The vacationer's eyes bulge as they await catastrophe. Passengers draw lots to determine who will be among those saved, but unlike the Titanic, in "New York to Hong Kong in Two Hours!" there are no deferrals for women and children.
