Harlequins director of rugby Conor O'Shea believes his side will keep improving whatever the outcome of Saturday's Premiership final.
Quins face Leicester Tigers in a bid to win the title for the first time in the club's history.
"Whatever happens, we'll learn and become a better side. There'll be a challenge whichever way.
"If we don't win, we'll regroup. If we win, we'll have to back it up. Because that's what great teams do."
O'Shea unbowed by underdogs tag
He added: "We're on the start of a journey that will be very special for this club."
Quins finished the season top of the table but must defeat an in-form Tigers side who have reached the Premiership final in each of the past eight seasons and are in pursuit of a record 10th English title.
O'Shea, who guided the London club to victory in the European Challenge Cup final last term, is comfortable talking down his side despite a memorable season that saw them perched atop the Premiership from the third week onwards.
"They [Tigers] are the standard-bearer with eight finals in a row and are justifiably favourites," he continued.
"They have to be favourites given what they've achieved."
