'Well begun is half done'. Do you agree with this?There is an often quoted idiom ,'Well begun is half done'. Can we accept this as an universal truth? Will this become a fact in practice? I have reservations for accepting this as an universal truth. I have experienced several incidences or projects which had a very good beginning but had to be discontinued due to several reasons.
In the case of Govt. projects, very often there will be a very fine function in the beginning as inaugural function and will also start the work with much enthusiasm. But slowly this enthusiasm dies down and the project gets wound up. This is not happening in public sector alone. In personal life also such experiences will be there for many. Of course, I am not generalizing this. Successful projects would have started well in several cases. Also there can be several cases where the beginning was very slow and without any publicity, but the end would be noticed because of its success.
What is your view on this?
