“The expectations of life depend upon diligence; the mechanic that would perfect his work must first sharpen his tools.”– Confucius
Confucius is prolific in his writing. No doubt, due to diligence in thought and in writing.
Worked for him!
Diligence – care and consistency in tasks, even if they’re mundane. It’s an Interfanatic Virtue because not everything we want to do is sexy, but we must do it. That’s what we’re here for.
We can do diligence.
Colleen Skibsrud: Diligence in the Startup Arena
Skibsrud is familiar with the requirements of diligence. She’s had to keep after her new business like a shark stalking prey. In her new business helping the senior community of Kristiansand, Norway, she’s had to adapt and overcome the difficult obstacles that present themselves to all new business. And, some that aren’t too familiar.
Skibsrud’s goal has always been to keep her community healthy: fit, and enjoying a life of purpose. She’s able to do that through exercise classes, her smoothie and coffee bar, and the sense of belonging and invitation her community creates.
Diligence Through the Tough Times
When you’re starting out, and everyone is busy pointing out why you’re going to fail, it can be difficult to persevere through those tough workout classes with just a few clients. But Skibsrud has done that, trusting herself and trusting her process. The result is a full, busy place of business. It’s just taken time, sticking to her guns, and diligence.
She has continually sharpened her tools of business.
