drive and ambition
Once Robert Altman sets his mind on a goal, his dedication, determination, and commitment are extraordinary.

Like Aesop's tortoise, Robert labors patiently and steadfastly until he achieves what he wants - or until it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is lost. He is a reliable, consistent and productive worker, and he often shoulders more of the workload than his co-workers, usually without complaint. He often ends up with the nitty-gritty work. He prefers a regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks.
