We live in a microwave society where most expect to get what they want instantly, or at least in less than a minute. We trick ourselves into believing that fame and success can be achieved overnight, if we'll only work harder, longer, and faster. We've adopted an all-or-nothing attitude that says we must either succeed or fail, with no in between. But there is a period in between success and failure that, for some, lasts for years. The most striking part of "Colonel" Sanders's story is how long his in-between lasted.
