Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end

It was the Roman philosopher Seneca who first realised that “every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end”.

As you start out on the journey towards your vision you will likely feel excited. But at the same time part of you is likely also to experience fear, anxiety, and the loss of the period of time that came before. The same applies to everyone on your team.

You have to let go of life as you knew it before you can move into life as it is going to be.

Being aware of and carefully managing this inner emotional transition can be just as important to your success as managing the outer operational changes that your vision will require. This needn’t be difficult. It can be as simple and straightforward as the practical action of turning a key or flicking a switch. But it can be just as important in enabling you to get going.

And the first step is to realise that it is happening. For you, and for the people around you.
