Inspiration to help writers do what earns them the title: Write

Printers Row Lit Fest this past weekend introduced me to a number of books I otherwise might not have found including a book of quotations, Have Courage, Work Hard: Quotations on Work and Success from the First Women of Business by Mary Goljenboom.

Among its gems is this one from a woman who built a company training on industrial engineering, which inspires me to finally finish my work-in-progress manuscript:

Success does not usually come through a lucky accident, a marvelous endowment and equipment, or an extraordinary combination of circumstances, but through a definite plan of work, ability to stick to a job, and a realization that real satisfactions come only from keeping at a thing until it is done and done thoroughly.

~ Lillian M. Gilbreth, 1928
