You cannot make yourself feel something you do not feel, but you can make yourself do right in spite of your feelings.

A decided advantage

Working every moment toward an objective is far more productive than waiting until the last moment to get started. Progressing steadily gives you a decided advantage over catching up frantically.

The farther in advance you begin to make a difference, the more you’re able to leverage your time and effort. Over time, modest efforts can add together to bring big results. Start early, remain steady, and you can do amazing things. Take the opportunity of each day as it comes, and those opportunities seized will pile on top of one another into something grand.

Right now you are working steadily toward a future that you choose by virtue of the actions you take on the way there. Each moment is precious in its own sake, and even more valuable because it contains the seed of greater moments become. Enjoy each moment, nurture the seeds of possibility, and you’ll reap a bountiful harvest.

— Ralph Marston
