Industry and Perseverance

Two words which may have gone out of fashion: 
Industry — in the sense of diligent labor — 
And perseverance, or as my dad would say, 
“Stick-to-it-iveness:” the willingness 
To see a task or challenge through to completion. 
These are rarely the easy choices, 
But often the most rewarding ones — 
Which can be hard to remember in this era 
Of sound bites and instantaneous responses.
