Persistence. It's what marks those who succeed, and its lack marks those who fail. We've run into obstacles at every turn, every idea, every initiative. Some days it feels like the universe conspires against us, but we Persist Without Exception. Andy Andrews is a hero of ours; he says those who throw in the towel are all wet. At the Maui Writer's conference years ago Andy said that we all need to understand that we're in command of the game clock, that the game's not over till we say it's over. Persist Without Exception, and no matter what you set out to do, even the universe can't stand in your way.
