Dr. Seuss (aka Theo Geisel), was rejected for his first kids book... 27 times in a row. 28 was the magic number, and he went on to become one of the most famous kids book authors ever. The point is that tenacity wins -- and many publishers, movie producers and record labels lack imagination and insight. Yes, they occasionally pick winners, but they reject many more -- and we have little evidence that their success rates are greater than that of monkeys throwing darts.
