The Closing Word: Assiduous

The Closing Word: AssiduousThis week we continue our vocabulary-building series, “The Closing Word.” Each week we provide a new word to help build your vocabulary and show you an example of how to use it.

This week’s closing word:


Pronounced: (uh-SID-you-us)

marked by care and persistent effort ”Assiduous comes from two Latin words: assiduus, meaning “busy incessant, continual or constant,” and assidere, meaning “to sit down to” something. (Funnily enough, we also get the word sedentary, meaning someone who doesn’t move around much, a lazy couch potato, from this same last word.)”

“If you are assiduous with your follow-up, you will certainly land more clients than your competitors.”
