Like many other Chinese proverbs, this one is four characters. This number of characters feels complete and succinct to Chinese people. In these types of idioms the sum of the characters will have greater meaning than each individual character. This ancient proverb scroll means that "the diligent do excellent work." They want to do their very best in everything. They are whole-hearted and they give max effort. This effort is rewarded by the satisfaction of knowing the job was well done.
