    • 44. Final thoughts The largest enemy of change and leadership isn't a &quot;no.&quot; It's a &quot;not yet.&quot; “ Not yet&quot; is the safest, easiest way to forestall change. &quot;Not yet&quot; gives the status quo a chance to regroup and put off the inevitable for just a little while longer. Change almost never fails because it's too early. It almost always fails because it's too late . - Seth Godin
