A Brief Guide to World Domination, Olivia Pope Style
Lesson One: There is always another move to be made.
Quinn: So, we lost? I mean, what happens when we lose? We’re just…done?
Olivia: We’re never done. If we lose this round, we prep him for appeal. If we lose that, we prep him for a second appeal because whatever happens, there’s always another move. Whatever happens, we do not give up. It is my name on that door and I do not give up.
Did you hear that? Olivia Pope DOES NOT LOSE. Not necessarily because she always gets it right the first time, but because she doesn’t give up. The lesson here? There is always another move to be made.
In other words, don’t be afraid to try something and “fail.” Olivia says it herself: failing just means that you didn’t learn, adjust, and, most importantly, try again.
