“Determine never to be idle… It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing.” — Thomas Jefferson

Jefferson made this famous quote in a letter to his daughter, Martha, on May 5, 1787. It speaks to the character quality of Diligence.

The definition we use from the Character Training Institute is:

Investing my time and energy to complete each task assigned to me

The wisest man who ever lived, King Solomon, understood the importance of diligence:

Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings…

Proverbs 22:29
