That kept on along the whole book, but despide that, the message that this text conveys is a ver powerful one. There are a few books which I can say that are able to change the way you think about things and the way you DO things, and this is one of them. I've assumed the attitude described in this book and believe me, it changes everything.
It's kind of short too, so don't miss out on it.
In order to understand this scenario, the story revolves around Alden P. Ricks, also known as Cappy Ricks and his lumber and logging company and his encounter with a go-getter that he described as anyone under 30 years old. And during the first few pages of the short story, the only man that he thought fit that trait was his son-in-law who he was seeking to fill a position at the company's Shanghai office. But little did he know that World War I veteran William E. Peck, a soldier who had list of unlikely circumstances after his service during the war, lost a part of his left arm, suffered a broken leg that was shorter than it should be, had a bout with pneumonia and influenza, and tuberculosis, would appear at his general office. And as he observed, illness did not stop Peck from pursuing his goal to land a job with Ricks's company. However, Rick and President of the company Mr. Skinner had something in mind to determine Peck's capability to prove his worthiness to the company. And as one reads Kyne's clever storyline, there is no denying how this narrative could have easily been included within the pages of a Dale Carnegie book.
The title of the book indeed already gives the reader an idea what they may expect the storyline may be about. But that should not discourage anyone from delving into the pages of this very short story that tells an interesting perspective of how one man's persistence, logic, and common sense helped to influence his goal.
After finishing this book, I immediately remembered times in my young life where I know I didn't give it my all on certain tasks or where I could have gone above and beyond what was required. I remember many times when I also just gave up. This book was inspiring and has given me a new outlook regarding my job and my life goals. There are actually many lessons to be learned in this little book.
The main lesson I took away from the book is that if someone like Mr. Peck could give 100% and get the job done, then I really have no excuse.
