    The seven practices are designed to

    provide a template that will help you determine

    which programs to start, what to stop, and how to improve what's

    doing. Embrace the inevitable and prepare now for

    the future.

    To maintain your relevance, your sanity, and your

    effectiveness, you must carve out time in your schedule to

    step back and evaluate what you are doing and how you are doing it.
