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.
