I’m guessing there were some glum faces in your office yesterday?
The pain of England getting knocked out of a tournament is unlike pretty much anything else, and this pain feels especially bad given that the path to World Cup glory did seem to open up in a seriously surprising way.
However, I know that when the dust settles, I’ll look back on this tournament with fond memories.
The penalty shootout curse is off our backs.
We’ve won a knockout game (two in fact!) for the first time in 12 years.
We’ve got a young, hungry squad, a bright manager and plenty of time to develop, grow and improve.
It’s important to bear in mind that if someone had offered us a semi-final at the start of the tournament, we’d have bitten their hand off.
What we received was way more than what we’d expected. England well and truly overdelivered for us this summer.
And happily, that’s been the case at Expert Print Management this year too.
If you buy a decent amount of print, then you’ll know its not unknown for a print job to end up being delayed, and that can cause a lot of frustration for the person buying the print, who needs it to further their own aims.
Some delays are unforeseen, and you can’t do anything about them, but it doesn’t make them any less frustrating.
That’s why I’m proud to report that when we ran our report at the end of June, every single one of our orders over the last 3 months has been delivered on-time – or early!
I don’t want to blow my own trumpet here, but in the world of print, that’s pretty special.
We won’t rest on our laurels now though – my new aim is to make that six months, then nine months, and then a year.
You get my drift. We’ll continue to strive for perfection, and we’ll continue to get better, just like Southgate’s England.
