Thinking about Outcomes

It’s interesting how themes keep coming up again and again. One that keeps popping up for me is the importance of considering outcomes for any activity, project, action or even life.
One of my professors at Fuller Seminary consistently challenged everyone to "finish well" and "begin with the end in mind".
In What’s the Perfect Outcome, Jeffrey Phillips riffs on the theme as does David Allen in Outcome thinking rocks. Of course planning and thinking of the desired outcome ("What does success look like for this project?" and "What does complete mean for this project?") is a critical part of the whole GTD workflow as well.
One of the strongest calls for the importance of outcome thinking is in the book Start with No! by Jim Camp. I’ll have a review and a mind map of the book up next week.
