Whenever we commission an expansion of our activities in both personal or business settings, we must remember to follow with periods of strengthening. Just like the muscles of the body can be expanded purposefully, to avoid damage and create sustainable growth, a rest period is required. This period includes a consolidation of learning, restructuring of new resources and healing. Once the healing is completed the body is reformed ready to address greater demands expected of it.
In the same vain when stretching ourselves financially the wise investor will implement a period of consolidation. Similarly the creation of long term sustainable organisations is dependent on the careful management of growth and selective balancing of stretching and strengthening activities.
