Perserverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did.
- Newt Gingrich
Admittedly Newt Gingrich is a controversial character. But, we're going to step away from that controversy to focus on what he said. And, that rings true no matter what your politics.
We all get tired working sometimes. Nothing at all surprising about that. The decision you make at that point is the critical one.
Will you focus on your fatigue? And quit? Or will you perservere and continue to work towards your goal? The choice is your's.
We're about 60% through the month of December. We've been focusing on our financial transactions. But it's a busy month. With a lot of financial activity. You're tired. Just like everyone else. It's crossed your mind to quit. So now the choice is your's. You can say that you've put in enough hard work. And quit. Or you can say that you're tired, but your goal is worth pursuing. And continue to focus on your finances today.
So what's it going to be? Your call.
