This week we will dare to briefly deter­mine a def­i­n­i­tion for the term OVERCOME. OVERCOME as defined by Merriam-Webster sim­ply means; to get the bet­ter of or sur­mount.  As a young man I was not instructed in the res­o­lu­tion of most sit­u­a­tions, only given the hind­sight res­o­lu­tions.  The prob­lem with hind­sight instruc­tions is that they […]
