Law six: The law of rhythm
Carl Bates writes in his book The Laws of Extreme Business Success about the 12 laws of business success. The sixth law looks at the way a business should breath and ride the waves like a well tuned yacht over the ocean swells. Rhythm is all about a slow, yet well constructed melody and not a hectic heavy metal band. The law states:
Extreme business success thrives in an environment of effective timing and rhythm, which builds momentum over time and drives the team forward without the ongoing effort it initially takes to get started. Rhythm also requires you to become conscious of the stage your business is at, and to work in a way that is appropriate for that stage.
