Incremental small steps to control costs are like kedging by sailors

According to Legal Technology News recently, to kedge a ship was to move it by dropping a small anchor ahead and hauling on it to pull the ship forward. For ships becalmed, this arduous process inched them forward until the wind picked up. General counsel may feel that they are kedging when they set in motion a cost-saving technique.

Every accomplishment worth striving for takes time, persistence, and hard work and even then usually progress is slow and painful – very much like kedging.
