Saturday I joined a friend of mine in running the Chickamauga Battlefield Marathon.
This made marathon #7 for me. Each time I undertake one I learn something new. But after running a handful of them, one lesson has remained constant.
That is, “the last six miles are harder than the first twenty.”
When it comes to leadership, there is a similar principle at work . . . Many leaders start well. Few go the distance.
When it comes to being sustainable, are you on the right track or are you about to be derailed?
Are you a finisher? A strong finisher?
As you begin a fresh week of leadership I encourage you to keep your focus.
There are no prizes given out at the twenty mile mark. Those are reserved for those who finish.
