Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end

Start and Finish line

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 achieving your vision you will likely feel excited. But at the same time part of you is likely to be experiencing fear, anxiety, and the loss of what had come before.

You have to let go of life as you knew it before you can move into life as it is going to be. And that applies to everyone on your team.

Being aware of and managing this inner emotional transition can be just as important as managing the outer operational implementation.

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

Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.
