Industry is the steady application of effort in the services of our goals and dreams. When we are industrious, we persist even when we get tired because we value getting a task done and doing it well.
Much that is worthwhile can be achieved only through hard work. From the outside this work may be invisible; another person's attainments often appear to come easily, yet this is rarely the case. When we recognize and honor the patient persistent efforts of others, we are encouraged in our own.
Industry is the sometimes long and rocky path that takes us from aspiration to accomplishment.
