Focus and determination are the subjects of this 1921 parable about a 'never-say-die' salesman who is given a challenge and gets it done. The premise of being tested by a strict boss and succeeding may seem outdated. But by applying the timeless lessons in this parable, employees at all levels will learn to rekindle the go-getter in themselves.
