About Me

Habit is like a flywheel, it is hard to inculcate at the start.  The more you make it turn, the easier it gets.  Once it becomes easier, it is easier to do and becomes automatic.  The idea is to make a habit out of good practices.  Make a habit of best practices......hmmm..... good for organizations too.

I think it was in "Good to Great" that Jim Collins talks about the flywheel effect.  It takes about seven years for the good companies to become great.  Once the flywheel is turning well, the organization takes off!  I have to re-read this portion of the book.  I think I have it on CDs so I will take it in my car today.
