DON’T EVER STOP
Determination is an attitude that pushes us forward and pulls us along until success is achieved. It is an exercise of will born from a lack of foreseeable alternative options and that failure isn’t an option. When one path ends without success, back up and explore the next one.
Whether it’s a server that won’t boot or SQL query that won’t return the right dataset or a car problem that you don’t have the money to have a professional diagnose and fix.
That’s not to say there isn’t a time to ask for help – in fact, smart problem solvers draw upon the knowledge and experience of others and apply those nuggets of truth to their situation.
Leaders own the problem, seek help from trusted sources, learn from the process and move on to what’s next.
