The golden connection

Whenever there is something you desire to accomplish, make a solid, personally meaningful connection between what it is and why you are doing it. Find a way to maintain that connection moment by moment, day by day, and to keep it firmly at the front of your mind.

When difficulties and disappointments come, when the challenges seem to be overwhelming, when you are weary, that connection will keep you going. Knowing why, and connecting it to what, will make all the difference in the world in your motivation, energy level, effectiveness, persuasiveness, creativity, persistence and ability to get things accomplished.

What do you truly desire for yourself, and why? Forge a golden connection between what and why, and you’ll achieve truly remarkable things.

— Ralph Marston
