It's a good strategy, I think. If you have something good, hold fast to it. That means that you are not only aware of having something good, you are also smart enough to do whatever it takes to keep that something good.
If there is anything Ric does, it's stick with a decision once he has made it. And when he finds something good, there's no way he is ever letting go of it. Fortunately for me, Ric has decided that I am something good in his life and he is holding fast, indeed.
