Limits vs. Going over the Top: Beating the Odds by Grit and Perseverance

 On a Chipotle bag is Sheri Fink (PhD, MD) on the case against limits. She wrote the book on the New Orleans Hospital during Katrina.  Her point here is that much of our inquiry about rationing ignores the fact that people want to do it all, and some are willing to try.

"Then I think about that innovative, can-do attitude. That refusal to accept limits, quintessentially American. A student nurse says: on my ward we won’t give up on anyone. It is unrealistic. It is exactly what might save us."

Similarly, it may well matter that you not believe the odds and try to beat them, say as an entrepreneur.
