Early in my academic career a speaker at a conference on publishing provided great advice. The speaker said, “You’re going to think you’ve written a great paper worthy of publication.The critics won’t agree with you and they will reject your paper. Learn to live with rejection, but don’t accept rejection as final. Learn from the rejection, revise your paper and submit it again and again.” It was great advice that applies to many parts of life. Rejection is not final. Try, try, and try again.
I am an optimistic, can do, and never quit guy. The spirit of hope indelibly marks my DNA. My research at The Ohio State University helped people discover the best in themselves and change their personal lives, public organizations, and whole communities. I bring the same spirit and enthusiasm to my blog to help those who grieve who find themselves suddenly alone, navigate their grieving. Join my more than 24,300Twitter (@alwaysgoodstuff).
