Have You Ever Tried To Do Something 726 Times Before You Got It Right

Have you ever tried to do something 726 times before you got it right? You might not have, but Thomas Edison (pictured right) did. Edison tried 726 times to make the light bulb work before he got it right. Did you know that Edison had a learning disability? Other reports also indicated that he perseverated (focused attention/fixation on a task or event) and later in life, had a hearing impairment. But the fact remains that he attempted to make the light bulb work 726 times before it did.

What does that say about living with a disability, particularly a learning disability? Reflect on the number 726 and what it means about living with disability
