Any development of quality is going to take time.
You are delivering projects that are making a difference. There's no significant change or value delivered overnight, and it’s vital that you bare this in mind. If you're delivering quality and value, you need to plan, you need to formulate a proper strategy, you need to consult- there's lots to take in. You will get tired. The team will get tired.
In this blog post we tell you how to roll with the punches and deliver greatness.
Hurdles, barriers and jumping over the lot!
What you'll find is you're going to have several implementation meetings, lots of communications, and an implementation team, all managed over email, telephone, Skype or a project management system. There's going to be barriers from certain people, because that's human nature and they don't really want to do something because they fear change, or the barriers are legitimate, maybe financial, maybe personal, or they could be culture changes or culture barriers. You and your implementation team are going to hit these barriers a lot. It’s normal.
Once you're over that initial excitement of starting your project and delivering this great change, what we call ‘the honeymoon period’, there might be a dip in motivation or drive from yourself and the team. That's natural. When that happens, you have to immediately break this mentality. There's a few ways you can do it.

Persistence Quotes to inspire you
Winston Churchill is particularly inspirational on this front. After London endured 57 consecutive bombings by the Germans during World War II (the Blitzkrieg), he was invited to address a group of students. In that speech, he uttered his immortal line
"Never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, give up.”
Energy and persistence conquer all things.
Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not. Nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not. Unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not. The world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.
You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.
Ambition is the path to success. Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in.
Paralyze resistance with persistence.
