It's all about finishing when you're running the race, but you always have to have a plan of how you're going to run the race. Here are some quotes about planning for the race:

“A goal without a plan is just a wish.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”
"T accomplish great things we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
