Rome was Built in One Second

Rome wasn't Built in a DayAn interesting take on the saying, Rome wasn’t built in a day, (a saying that I personally hate).

A response to anyone that states this saying is that, You’re correct, Rome was built with just one thought.  This response can be expanded and utilize in many other aspects in life and in business.

Rome was Built with Just One Thought

Rome was built with just one thought.  I do not understand why many do not use this saying and do not understand its core meaning.

The saying that Rome was built with just one thought, directs the attention of the foundation of Rome.  Much like many other aspects in this world, many things were created directly from their foundation while brainstorming, writing a business plan, etc..  Henry Ford stated that he wanted to build a car that could be affordable for the masses.  Now were the cars built after a long period of time or after Henry Ford made that remark?

Yes, I do understand that Rome or Ford took many years to fully develop and much resources went into research and development, but when can you say Rome, or Ford for that matter, completed their development and finished?  Was Rome built when they conquered many lands or when someone laid the first stone on the ground for the name of Rome?

The Relation to Morale and Motivation in the Workplace

The saying that Rome wasn’t built in a day, gets said quite frequently in the workplace, especially when their are employees or managers that are procrastinating and will respond with this saying when told that their rate of production is not fast.  Procrastinating employees and/or managers will lower the morale and motivation of the rest of the employees in the workplace, because key aspects of the work is not being completed in a timely manner and that the rest of the hard working employees may have to pick up more work due to the slow employees and management.
