This has been posted on my fridge for so long I have no idea where I found it:
The ability to stick with a job until it’s finished.
The ability to do a job without being supervised.
The ability to carry money without spending it.
The ability to bear an injustice without wanting to get even.
For me, numbers 1 and 2 are easy (especially since I retired–around home is another story), and I’m very frugal so #3 is no problem, but the word “wanting” in #4 is what I have the most trouble with–I can bear an injustice, but . . .
How about you?
And do you think the list covers all it should?
