Diligence is if I can continue doing this thing for the next 10years, 10 months, or 10days. I am diligent if I continue.
Yes, diligence is that too, but it is much more than that. To operate with that kind of thinking will find you unprepared for the things that will be demanded as a daily price for diligence.
Diligence will demand that you convince yourself again tomorrow to do what you made up your mind to do yesterday. Diligence really is when you make up your mind daily. It doesn’t have a timing. It’s till the end of that work, whenever that will be.
Show me a man who is diligent in his work, he will sit amongst kings.
That means he’ll be a king. Only kings have the legal right to sit with other kings. Commoners sit apart from kings.
Mark a man not by the uncertain beginning of his work, but by the end of each work. The latter end of a matter is always greater than its beginning.
So, get yourself ready to make your choice again tomorrow. Mark diligent men and follow them. You’re in the company of kings.
