Diligence: n. doing something frequently quietly and relatively constantly and carefully and energetically and persistently and frequently doing it in detail and/or exactness

Diligent workmanship is frequently the way a perfectionist works. A perfectionist will frequently work carefully, energetically, persistently, and with attention to detail and/or exactness.

The less of a perfectionist that you are then probably the less diligent you are and are sometimes handicapped with carelessness, spurts of activity, some mistakes, and occasional negligence.

Diligence can be a virtue but sometimes too much diligence can slow down creative effort and spurts of inspiration which require some randomness of behavior. Creative work is more than just a strict regime of dedicated diligent workmanship. – by Uldis Sprogis, M.S.Ed. from University at Buffalo (1972)
