Winners understand endurance.
Endurance is likely the distinguishing attribute between teams that win and those that don’t. Winners know there is a light at the end of the tunnel. They understand the endurance and pace necessary to reach the end. They understand what resources are necessary. They understand which compromises to make and which ones to avoid. Understanding all of these factors culminates in an endurance that leads to a victory. Other teams are still trying to figure out the winning endurance formula. Without one, people are forced to quit.
