Quote of the day — “Tenacity is not the same as persistence”

Via — Seth’s Blog: Tenacity is not the same as persistence.

Tenacity is not the same as persistence

Persistence is doing something again and again until it works. It sounds like ‘pestering’ for a reason.

Tenacity is using new data to make new decisions to find new pathways to find new ways to achieve a goal when the old ways didn’t work.

Telemarketers are persistent, Nike is tenacious.

On owning it I…

On owning it

If you announce what you want, if you are clear about what’s on offer, if you set goals…

the chances of accomplishing your goal go up, and so does…
the chance that you will be disappointed
For many people, apparently, it’s better to not get what you want than it is to be disappointed. The resistance is powerful indeed.

Every time you use waffle words, back off from a clear statement of values and priorities and most of all, think about what’s likely instead of what’s possible, you are selling yourself out. Not just selling yourself out, but doing it too cheaply.

Own your dreams. There is no better way to make them happen.
