Some teams hit an emotional wall after their first year of implementing EOS®. Teams that begin with many large issues to resolve, can make significant progress in the first year and, because of what is still left to accomplish, feel unsatisfied and a bit discouraged. It’s not unlike the marathoner who, after completing 10 miles, realizes there are still 16 miles to go. If you are feeling a bit exhausted from the first 10, the prospect of running the final 16 can feel overwhelming. Dan Sullivan calls it “the gap” between where we are and where we want to be.
