Perseverance is a tough lesson to learn, but in the end, it is one of the most valuable ones. It makes you stronger, more patient, and helps you embrace what is most important. For the past several months, Cultivate has been working hard on a new project – launching a new online training platform for our trainees. It’s been a battle since day one. The barriers to the success of this launch have been many, but we have kept working diligently. But it can be discouraging to have major set backs and delays. It’s frustrating to know this is the most important work we have right now, yet other priorities take away time from working on this project continually until it’s done.

It would be so easy to give up, to not aim so high, to settle. But perseverance has to win. We believe this will be a huge win for our organization, and so we’ll keep fighting on. This training platform is desperately needed. Not only will it give valuable information to our trainees, it also will manage our workforce more efficiently, allowing us to work with more people and have a greater impact.

The project is not yet finished. We’ve launched the platform, but problems still arise. There is still so much content to be created and published. But no matter the set backs, the headaches, and the difficulties, we’ll keep pushing on. This is important work that we won’t give up on. There’s too much at stake.
