    steady will

    Hello, teachers.
    If I want to express that my will won't weaken and it will be as strong as the beginning, can i use the adjective "steady" to modify "will"? For example, can I say "With a steady will, I will finish the task on time."
    Thank you in advance.

    Re: steady will

    It certainly makes sense to state that your will is steady. You can also have a determined will or an indomitable will. You might want to change 'will' to 'shall' in order to avoid confusing the reader.

    'With a steady will, I shall finish the task on time.'
