There are many important factors that make up a successful business. Motivated employees, technology usage (hey, we can help with that), financial investment, marketing strategy, and more. Yet I think there is a single most important factor in successful business.

Your committed diligence in accomplishing what you love is the most important factor in a successful business.

Perhaps this principle could be broken down into two factors: hard work and passion. Yet I think they go together. If your passion doesn’t motivate you to work hard you may not be as passionate as you think you are!

This successful business factor, this passionate diligence, is actually one of the most important factors for a successful life.

A successful king of the 10th century B.C. once wrote:

“Keep thine heart with all diligence: for thereout cometh life”

and

“A slothful hand maketh poor: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.”

According to this successful man the contents of one’s life springs up from one’s heart (one’s passion). Furthermore, diligent work leads to success.

What worked three millennia ago still works today.

Growing a Successful Business and a Thriving Family

I wear a lot of hats (perhaps you do as well). The most important role I have is as husband and father. I have a growing family (our third child is due soon) and love every moment of it. I am passionate about my wife and my children and that drives me to work hard. If I didn’t love these people as much as I do I wouldn’t expend nearly as much energy working for them.

The need to provide for my family led to expanding my contracting into a larger business (Rystedt Creative). Technology is one of my passions. I love to help others accomplish more with the technology they have. Now I can combine both my passion for my family and my passion for technology into this business.

There are days when we’re exceeding our goals and I work diligently because I am passionate about my clients’ success.

There are other days when we’re still a long way off from our goals and I still work diligently because I am passionate about blessing my family.

Passionate diligence is the most important factor in my growing family and my growing business.
