Mark Watney (The Martian): Diligent Person

To give a backstory, Mark Watney is on the 3rd mission to Mars. When a major storm happens, his crew abandons the mission, heading off of Mars. But as they were leaving, Mark gets hit by debris and the rest of the crew leaves him because they thought he was dead. But he wasn't. He is now stranded on Mars with a year of food and water, no connection with NASA, and the closest rescue plan is a year and a half away.

It is only by his diligence that Mark might have a chance to survive. He uses his diligence to get what has to be done to survive like growing more food and water. Find out more about Mark's diligent journey as Mars keeps throwing him curve-balls by reading The Martian or seeing the movie.
