In “Sticky Is Good” I’m sharing thoughts on resilience and how being more like a postage stamp can be a good thing.
“Success is not measured by what you accomplish, but by the opposition you have encountered, and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds.”—Orison Swett Marden
I hadn’t thought about this particular quote in a long time and might not have at all had it not been for a unique set of circumstances two weeks ago. We ordered take-out from a pub we’re supporting during these Covid times in Oakville, Ontario , and along with dinner we ordered “pudding”—the Brit word for dessert. Fortunately “sticky toffee pudding” was on the menu. Once finished, I asked her what she thought and she replied: “Sticky is good”.
I know you are thinking two things: 1) What’s my point? 2) How does this relate to the quote? I’ll deal with the second one first. Orison Marden is credited with many things, and I believe one of the most significant is the word:“stick-to-it-iveness”.
So how does it relate to the quote? Well…. Happy listening!
