I was trying to compare two coworkers work habits.
- One is a sprinter, he works hard for months at a time but eventually gets bored with projects that go longer than a few months.
- The other is a marathoner, he works hard on projects day-in and day-out even if they go on for a year or two.
I thought of a bunch of words that describe focus, but they describe short-term focus. Words like:
But if I say the sprinter "has a limited attention span", most people would think he gets distracted by Facebook or the TV. What words or phrases would help me compare these two work ethics?
