Quote Of The Day: Golden "The Only Thing That Overcomes Hard Luck Is Hard Work"

Posted by Thomas J. West on August 11, 2011 at 7:35 AM

Starting something new is always a challenge. Recently, one of my new projects has hit a major snag. It's a snag big enough that the project needs major revision and will not be the same on the other end. That is disheartening, but I'm old enough now to know that these things happen for a reason and that the end product will be what it is supposed to be, even if it means operating on a different timeline and with different people than originally planned. And to that end, here is today's quote from Harry Golden:

The only thing that overcomes hard luck is hard work.

It is going to take a lot of hard work to adjust. The other option is to scrap the project entirely and say, "It was a nice idea, just not the right time." So far, I'm aiming for the former.
