What if Edison had been a Marathon Swimmer?
So obviously this is a rhetorical question but refers directly to setbacks and how everyone deals with them. In a way, it is keen to say that Edison would be much to the liking of the modern day marathon swimmer that, when faced with adversity (i.e. coming up with 1000 prototypes before successfully masterminding the lightbulb) he would in fact pick himself up like a prize boxer and fight for another day. In light of Tampa Bay Marathon Swim, and the many reasons why marathon swimmers face defeat (I know I have had my fair share), what goes through a marathon swimmer's mind the second of facing a setback in the moment (getting forced onto the support boat for whatever reason usually safety...hypothermia, unforseen conditions, injury, etc)? How long does it usually take for you to make the decision to try again as Edison would or move on?
