Persist Without Exception – thoughts from The Traveler’s Gift

If you are looking for an inspiring book to read, I recommend Andy Andrew’s book, The Traveler’s Gift.  It is full of meaningful insights, and it will make you think.

What hurdles or obstacles are you facing right now as a leader?

  • Your team is not meeting its goals?
  • Your team is slow to change?
  • A team member needs more counseling than coaching?
  • You face a difficult project and the deadlines are looming near?
  • The culture around you is lack-luster and you wonder if you can influence it?

Below are some of my highlights from a chapter in The Traveler’s Gift.  I trust this inspires and motivates you if that is what you need today.

I will Persist without Exception

  • A person who is depressed is spending too much time thinking about the way things are now and not enough time thinking about how he wants things to be.
  • The tragedy of life is not that man loses, but that he almost wins.
  • Those who quit lacked faith.
  • I know the outcome I desire. I hold fast to my dreams.
  • I do not quit.
  • I will persist without exception.
  • It is only important that I continue the process with my eyes on the outcome.
