Leaders Have Tenacity

The most difficulty thing is the decision to act,
the rest is merely tenacity.

Amelia Earhart

It is hard to make a decision. It is hard to act. It is hard to get started. It may be the hardest. It may be.... I am not completely sure I agree with Amelia. But we are ballpark. It is hard and if you don't make that decision, nothing else matters.

But once you have made the decision, then you must have TENACITY. You must have a "stick-to-it-ness." You must persevere. You must stay the course. You must see it as a marathon. You keep one foot going after the next. You hang in there.

It is one thing to start, quite another to finish.
