The law of cause and effect remains in force and still ensuring that you will get results if it is not stopped. Maybe it will be different from what you had planned, but it will have results. Many times are not harvested the fruits of a job immediately. It sometimes takes time. Their efforts, applied consistently, will bear fruit. The Hare, tortoise and flywheel what best explains this principle is the concept of the flywheel or Flywheel, described by Collins in his book Good to Great.

(Collins, Jim: Good to Great.) Harper Collins Publishers, USA, 2001. p.164-185) the flywheel is a part of an engine that transfers mechanical energy. Collins applies the same principle to the world of business to use it as a metaphor for a cycle of actions, among which each gives the power and speed to the following. The central idea is to not look for a product or service that will mark the success of your business, if not implement strategies on an ongoing basis with the certainty that gradually all actions will lead to success. As he tells the fable of the race between the Hare and the tortoise, the entrepreneurial Hare will be very busy and restless. You will be constantly seeking new strategies to find product star, which finally opens the doors to success, and will change its course after each failed attempt. It is well known that the Hare lost the career, since tired of both run to here and beyond. The turtle, on the other hand, proceeded slowly, but safely, always in the same direction.

And he won. The enterprising turtle produces a set of strategies that apply on an ongoing basis and that, as a whole, accelerate progress up to a point of break in which begin to get results. This gives the same effect that has a flywheel on the engine of a car. The wheel is pushed at the beginning and barely moves. To continue to apply the same actions, the wheel cobra speed and increasingly turns more quickly, up to the point where its inertia makes it move almost on its single seen from this point of view, a little assisted event or a less successful product, are not failures itself. They become stones of a mile of a long road to the end of which the entrepreneur has the certainty that you will get success. Put another way: A failure is a failure only when he stops and stop pushing!
