“Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did.”
I could not agree more with Gingrich’s definition. Ideas are not easy but motivation can easily fuel them. However, motivation wanes with time and if ideas do not succeed by then, they are dropped in the graveyard of obscurity. Only persistence can keep them nourished in adverse conditions of failure. I hope the above image and quote and these little words of mine will help revive few of those starving ideas from back of your mind.
