"If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude."
– Maya Angelou

"Fix the problem, not the blame."
– Japanese proverb




医学雑誌に投稿してもなかなかアクセプトされないこともありますが、以下のような話は勇気づけられます。まあ医学関係は売れるか売れないかと言う問題ではないので、このうようなことはめったにないかとは思いますが、、、Persistence paysの良い一例でしょうか、、、

Some years ago, Laurence J. Peter wrote a book about inefficiency in the business world. He called it: The Peter Principle: Why Things Always Go Wrong.

He sent the manuscript to McGraw-Hill. Their publications editor rejected it, saying, "I can foresee no commercial possibilities for such a book and consequently can offer no encouragement."

Peter sent his manuscript to 29 more publishers, and 29 more publishers rejected it. They agreed that its market value was limited.

After 30 rejections, you'd think that Peter would give up on his manuscript. But he didn't; he sent it out one more time—this time to William Morrow and Company. This time it was accepted.

And how did the book do marketwise? It sold over eight million copies. Not too bad for a book that 29 publishers rejected.
