Startups Try Harder.

I wrote this as a staff member of the' 65 Denver Thomas Jefferson High School yearbook, 5 years before Robert Townsend wrote the best selling "Up the Organization" about learning in 2nd place. "We try harder" is how CEO Townsend put it in the headlines of the ads for his #2 Avis (Hertz was #1 in market share.)

But throws fall short,
And scores come too late,
All teams can't finish first.
Learning is second place.

From TJ Yearbook, thanks
