The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won’t.
~Henry Ward Beecher
In running a small business I am finding perseverance to be key. It is difficult at times to stay focused and committed…especially when you are trying to run that business from home. I am resolved to continue no matter how big the obstacle. (Or how small–sometimes a 7 year old daughter can put the brakes on for me faster than just about anything else!)
The best tip I have found lately is to keep a list. In the morning I take a few minutes to gather my thoughts and make a list. Then I stick to it with a vengeance. It helps keep the detours to a minimum and I am achieving more of my goals now that I am actively setting them.
Share your tips with me. What do you recommend? How do you Persevere?
It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer. ~Albert Einstein
