Thoroughness is “taking care of details and doing my best”.
Thoroughness is a quality that deals with details as well as the big picture. A thorough person sees a project through to the end leaving no detail incomplete; while also keeping in mind the overall purpose and timing of the project.
- Plan my work.
- Pay attention to details.
- Make a list so I don't forget.
