Success: Tenacity vs. Persistence; Kind vs. Nice

names matter, apparently

Tenacity is a Success Code - by Dr. Julie Gurner

People often confuse persistence with tenacity.
While persistence will have you doggedly pushing toward the goal…
tenacity will have you pushing and, often, adapting. Adjusting to continue to win.

You're Too Nice — and It's Holding You Back

But being a “good person” isn’t the same as being a “nice person”…
and a lot of people confuse the two to their detriment.
In fact, being good means sometimes *not* being particularly nice.
