The end of the beginning

One of Winston Churchill’s famous quotes is “This is not the end: this is not even the beginning of the end. This is, perhaps, the end of the beginning!”

Today was the last of 7 sessions completed over 7 Thursday mornings in our latest Leadership Forum (Effective Personal Productivity for leaders & managers). Over 7 weeks each participant has discovered many small new ways (The Slight Edge, the ‘one percents’) to improve their day to day effectiveness and when you add all these together the end results are fantastic.

The end of a course though, or finishing a great book, or having some fantastic new ideas etc is just the beginning. The challenge is to keep up the new systems, to apply daily the new ideas and to refuse to allow yourself to slip back into old habits!
