Archive: Sustaining success
What I have learned is that we really don't know our capabilities and capacities until we are pushed well beyond our limits.

One of the reasons I am a successful writer and speaker is because I have made so many mistakes as I've built my business. I have a lot of material to work with.

We need to set Strasburg free from the ills of hero worship, allowing him to be excellent at the game while also remaining a decent human being.

When we see a true phenom, we watch and awe. Like a beautiful dance or virtuoso violinist, we are lifted above and beyond.

We love to make people stars before they prove they have staying power. Then we freak out when they fail to become legends.

When we focus on doing our best in whatever we strive to do, success will find its way to us.

Patrick Kennedy is doing what he wants and I think that makes more sense than just doing what people think you are supposed to do.

Could the Kennedy political dynasty be coming to an end with Patrick Kennedy moving on to other pursuits? I would argue that this is merely a hiatus. In a family known for its commitment to public service, it is likely we have not seen the last Kennedy hold office.

Rather than seeing Patrick Kennedy's retirement as the end of an era, I believe his decision is a very wise move, given his personal challenges. Somewhere out there is another Senator Kennedy and maybe even another President Kennedy. The hiatus will give them time to craft a fresh image and new political agenda.

The odds of being successful can be correlated to the freedom you have to author your actions, mastery over your own efforts, drive, and real talent. If Patrick is picking a different path, then may the wind be at his back.

In all walks of life, there are family dynasties. When enough talent and energy emerges in the next generation, the baton is passed and future generations ride the wave. But over time, the line tends to peter out.

Staying revved up and relevant requires hard work and a willingness to change without losing that which makes one unique and appealing in the first place.

If you keep things simple, you typically have longevity. The more moving parts something has, the more likely it is to break down.

I suspect that The Who have not sustained their success as much as they have merely replayed their hits from yesteryear. And there's nothing wrong with that.
