I was catching up on some personal reading this morning, and learned about a Japanese concept called gambaru. Says Garr Reynolds, "The concept ... is deeply rooted in the Japanese culture and approach to life. The literal meaning of gambaru expresses the idea of sticking with a task with tenacity until it is completed—of making a persistent effort until success is achieved." (Read more here.)

Whatever it is that you are striving for today, friends, may you tenaciously stick to it until you succeed. I'll do the same. Deal?
