Hard work wins the race

by Philip F. Jacobus, CEO | February 14, 2018
One of the things I've learned in business is that the people who work hard are the ones who succeed and prosper.

People who don't focus their time and effort on achieving a goal — in business or elsewhere — will not succeed.

A recent example of this was the men's 30km skiathlon at the Winter Olympics in South Korea last Sunday. There was an athlete from Norway named Simen Hegstad Kreuger who was in the starting group and somehow collided with another skier. He was knocked down and broke his ski pole while the rest of the pack was far ahead of him.

Kreuger recalled later that he wasn't sure if he'd come in anywhere close to the front of the pack but in the end, he won the Gold metal. So by working hard and diligently and not losing confidence in the face of adversity, the determined 24-year-old made his way back to the front of the pack and won the Gold metal.

Whatever your line of work, there's a lesson here.
