What Keeps You Going When You Want to Quit?

What Keeps You Going When You Want to Quit? | Strategy and Leadership | Scoop.it
Everything important requires work. Hard work. And sometimes there is a long arc between the dream and it’s realization. That’s when we want to quit, but that is also where the work and the transformation occur.
Chad Manske's insight:

Interestingly, this piece attracted me because of the runner in the picture (as well as the title), and the connection to hard work being required to achieve things of worth.  But it did more than that for me, because as Michael Hyatt gets into the piece, he's primarily talking about the state of marriages and how hard work is required to maintain them--and that it's worth it!  I definitely want the 4 girls in my life to read this one!
