"I hated every minute of training, but I said, 'Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.'" --Muhammad Ali

I know, you could just pass this off as another trite motivational quote, never quit, always win, go for it!   bla bla bla.

However, something came to me today.  Not every day is a prize fight, we all have to get up and produce at some level. But it doesn’t always have to be the Big Event.

We get up, we do our daily routine, nothing special, we don’t need to conquer the world, we just have to do our job.

Be it baker, banker or Mom, we do our thing.  The world is full of regular hero’s, driving trucks, frying burgers, running kids all over town. We just keep going.

This job of mine is that way some days, that blank screen staring at me, waiting for the words to appear. The words aren’t always genius, some days they’re barely entertaining. But they are there, they make it to the page. We do our thing together, and we don’t quit.

That is why we succeed… you can’t lose if you don’t quit…  we just don’t quit.
