It might sound simple, but knowing when to stop is pretty hard to do. Push too far, too fast, and whatever it is you’re trying to achieve falls off a cliff.
Don’t push far enough and the whole thing falls short. It’s a tricky, tricky skill to master and Power Players know exactly when to stop.
And the way they learn? They pushed a few things (or people) off a cliff. You’ve got to get it wrong (quite) a few times before you know when.
It’s like driving a manual. You only find that mid-point in your clutch after you’ve stalled it a few dozen times. But once you’ve mastered it, you rarely stall again.
Invest the energy and the time to finding your own ‘stop-point’. Once you’ve found it, you’ll rarely push too far (or not far enough) again.
