  • The tortoise, slow and steady, gets what he needs.

    It really is true that good things will eventually come to those who wait. Patience and diligence have a way of working themselves out for the person who has these traits. It is sort of like the story of the tortoise and the hare. The tortoise gets what he wants in the end because he ever so slowly works at it.

  • Sure it is.

    It is true that eventually good things come to those who wait because statistically the longer you wait the better the chance that something good will come along. Of course, many bad things may come along to but, eventually, something good will come along. It is just mathematically bound to happen.

  • Yes it is.

    I believe it is true that good things will come to those who wait and are patient. Sometimes it just is not the right time, you have to be patient, keep doing what you are doing, and eventually someone will take notice and everything you work hard for will pay off.

  • Things come to those who wait

    In my opinion things come to those who wait. I think this due to, The people who wait have patience. The people who wait take their time to think of what to do. The people who wait keep quiet and known how to wait for their turn. This why I think ‘ Good things come to those who wait.

  • I am proof

    That good things come to those who wait. I still had to earn it though. But I never stepped over anyone in the process. I set my goal and I put my mind, heart and soul into receiving it. I just never gave up all I did was believe in my own abilities.

  • The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don't wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good.

    good things will come

    Every one of us has times when we need to know things will get better. My declaration is that is precisely what the gospel of Jesus Christ offers us, especially in times of need. 30 years ago last month, a little family set out across the United States, every earthly possessions they owned packed into the smallest trailer available. No money. An old car.

    They drove exactly 34 miles up the highway, at which point their beleaguered car erupted. The young father surveyed the steam, matched it with his own, then left his trusting wife and two innocent children-- the youngest just three months old-- to wait in the car while he walked the three miles or so to the southern metropolis of Kanarraville, population then, I suppose, 65.

    Some water was secured at the edge of town, and a very kind citizen offered to drive back to the stranded family. The car was attended to, and slowly, very slowly, driven back to Saint George for inspection. After more than two hours of checking and rechecking, no immediate problem could be detected, so once again the journey was begun.

    In exactly the same amount of elapsed time at exactly the same location on that highway, with exactly the same pyrotechnics from under that hood, the car exploded again. Now feeling more foolish than angry, the chagrined young father once more left his trusting loved ones and started the long walk for help once again.

    This time, the man providing the water said, either you or that fellow who looks just like you ought to get a new radiator for that car. He didn't know whether to laugh or to cry at the plight of this young family. How far have you come, he said. 34 miles, I answered.

    How much farther do you have to go? 2,600 miles, I said. Well, you might make that trip, and your wife and those two little kiddies might make that trip, but none of you are going to make that trip in that car. He proved to be prophetic on all counts.

    Just two weeks ago, I drove by that exact spot. For just an instant, I thought perhaps I saw on that side road an old car with a devoted young wife and two little children. Just ahead of them, I imagined that I saw a young fellow walking toward Kanarraville, the weight of a young father's fear evident in his pace.

    In that imaginary instant, I couldn't help calling out to him, don't you quit! You keep walking. You keep trying. There is help and happiness ahead. Some blessings come soon. Some come late, and some don't come till Heaven. But for those who embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ, they come. It will be all right in the end. Trust God, and believe in good things to come.

    Good Things Quotes

    good things will come

    “Sure, there are good things, lots, sure, blow jobs, chocolate mousse, winning streaks, the warm fire in your enemy’s house, good book, hunk of cheese, flagon of ale, office raise, championship ring, the misfortunes of others, sure, good things, beyond count, queens, kings, old clocks, comfy clothes, lots, innumerable items in stock, baseball cards and bingo buttons, pot-au-feu, listen, we could go on and on like a long speech, sure it’s a great world, sights to see, canyons full of canyon, corn on the cob, the eroded great pyramids, contaminated towns, eroded hillsides, deleafed trees, those whitened limbs stark and noble in the evening light, geeeez, what gobs of good things, no shit, service elevators, what would we do without, and all the inventions of man, Krazy Glue and food fights, girls wrestling amid mounds of Jell-O, drafts of dark beer, no end of blue sea, formerly full of fish, eroded hopes, eruptions of joy, because we’re winning, have won, won, won what? the . . . the Title.”

    Transparency can mean many different things. Pricing and fee structure is the start, but hardly the end. While performance matters, the route to.

    Good Things Don't Come To Those Who Wait -- Good Things Come To Those Who Hustle

    good things will come

    "Data-Driven Thinking" is written by members of the media community and contains fresh ideas on the digital revolution in media.

    Today’s column is written by Shiv Gupta, founder at U of Digital.

    Conventional wisdom nowadays advises marketers to run as far away from black-box ad tech companies as possible. If a sales rep tries to dance around questions of transparency, they’re probably up to no good and you’d better not work with them, right?

    Well, maybe. But there is good reason for some of these companies to operate as they do, and there may actually be a ton of value in working with them. One, or possibly a few, could even emerge as unexpected winners in the ad tech wars.

    When a marketer refuses to work with one of these companies, part of their reasoning usually goes like this: “They won’t disclose margins because they are taking too much. And because they are taking too much, their performance will not be up to par with DSPs, which take a lot less.” However, quite to the contrary, many non-disclosed ad tech companies, such as Criteo, Quantcast and Exponential, to name a few, have built reputations for driving fantastic performance. So what gives?

    Let’s do some back-of-the-napkin math. Since a standard DSP, on average, charges somewhere between a 10-20% fee (the pricing section of the AdProfs DSP guide backs this up), let’s go with 15%. The typical black-box ad tech company generates anywhere between a 30-50% margin (as a point of reference, Criteo’s margin in its last earnings report was about 42%), so let’s go with 40%. Assuming that black-box companies win their fair share of performance battles, that would mean that they regularly overcome their significant margin disadvantage to outperform DSPs. And if that were the case, using these numbers, the black box would outperform the DSP on conversion rate by at least 22%. Here’s how the math breaks down:

    This math directly addresses the common industry question: “How is <insert black-box ad tech company here> still in business?” In many cases, they drive better performance for marketers, which in turn fuels strong margins, which in turn allows them to reinvest in their business and keep putting out a winning performance product. And that’s exactly what they’re out there selling: performance.

    Now if these black-box companies continue to win performance battles, how have DSPs managed to thrive? Because they’re selling transparency. That’s where they’ve invested their time and resources, and for good reason. There is a deep mistrust between buyers and sellers, sown over time by numerous events. There was the infamous ANA report. There were ad networks making absurd margins without providing much real value. There are continuing ad fraud scandals, many of which subtly implicate media and ad tech providers who conveniently turn a blind eye.

    Time and time again, marketers have been duped by questionable technology and business practices, so transparency has become a basic requirement of partnership, and performance has almost become secondary. This is why you’ve seen the rise of the transparent DSP and the (slow) decline of black-box ad tech.

    All of this inevitably leads to the question: Why don’t black-box companies just offer margin transparency and become a best-of-both-worlds solution? Because disclosing margin would open the door to fee negotiation. That would unwillingly enter them into a DSP price war, despite their model and value proposition being inherently different than a DSP’s. Compromising margin would derail their financial model and, consequently, the sustainability of their business. This is why they have stubbornly remained nontransparent. While this stubbornness has helped preserve their business model, it has also prevented them from growing, due to the aforementioned industry issues around trust.

    The good news is there’s a better future ahead, in which buyers and sellers will trust each other again. Thanks to industry initiatives (such as TAG, ads.txt and OpenRTB SupplyChain object), independent policing and transparency tools (White Ops, IAS, DoubleVerify and Amino Payments, for example) and even law enforcement (check out this story about the DOJ’s recent crackdown on an intricate ad fraud scheme), we’re moving toward a world in which trust will somewhat be restored. And in this future, perhaps many marketers will have brought programmatic buying in house, based on the trends we’re seeing now. What does a marketer look for in a partner, in this new world? Transparency probably falls down the priority list a bit, in favor of ease of execution and, most importantly, performance.

    So what does that mean for black-box ad tech?

    “... I’ve been here for years” LL Cool J

    Now, of course, it won’t be as simple as that, because transparency will still matter to a certain extent; too much damage has been done for trust to be entirely restored. These companies will have to walk the line of transparency, by artfully disclosing their margins while sticking to their guns and not entering into DSP-style fee negotiations. That may lead to some painful, short-term losses and will require fortitude. And they will probably need some – OK, a lot – of things to go their way. But those that are able to thread this needle have a very real shot of succeeding. Because they’ve built something that gives marketers what they value most: performance.

    So next time a rep dances around the transparency issue, spend some time asking them more questions before ending the meeting. It might work out in your favor.
