Ideas are easy. Execution is hard. Every Friday I will share an idea that's been rolling around in my head that I have neither the time nor the where-with-all to execute. Remember, it's free, so take it for what it's worth.
This is a simple one, inspired by the efforts of John Isner whose match with Nicolas Mahut at Wimbledon was the longest ever in tennis history, spanning three days and more than 11 hours. Barely able to stand on Wednesday evening after 8 hours of tennis, he willed his way to nightfall and came back the next day to win the match 6-4, 3-6, 6-7, 7-6, 70-68.
His effort reminds me of the Thomas Edison quotation: "Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up."
How close are you to success?
Give up now, and you'll never know.
