There’s a great article by Tom Verducci in SI. Two quotes stuck out for me:
“I never thought of losing, but now that it’s happened, the only thing to do is do it right. That’s my obligation to all the people who believe in me. We all have to take defeats in life.”
Verducci also quotes Henry Wadsworth Longfellow:
“But who shall dare to measure loss and gain in this wise? Defeat may be victory in disguise; The lowest ebb is the turn of the tide.”
What happens in any organization — a team, a school or classroom, a business — that allows them to work through a difficult time?
