Harold Wilson, a politician from the 1960's and past Prime Minister of the UK, is attributed with saying,
"A week is a long time in politics."
This is one of my more favourite quotes. A week - seven days - is a long time in business too. When faced with challenging situations I often ask, "what will have changed by this time next week?"
This is a really useful question to ask your colleagues because you only have to do that 50 times and you've (near enough) covered a year. Do that a 100 times and you've covered two years. You can achieve an awful lot in two years. Businesses grow because people consistently make progress, week after week.
