No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.

Dive in

There is so very much work to be done. And truly what a blessing that is. Because getting things done is what you do best. Getting things done is what keeps life interesting, fulfilling and vibrantly moving forward.

You won’t get it all done today, or tomorrow, or next week or next year. But that’s a good thing, not a reason for dismay. Just think how terribly empty life would be if you never had anything to do. How truly fortunate you are to be alive and able to make a difference.

Now is an ideal moment to get busy making that difference. Now is a great time to enthusiastically dive in and get to work on all that can be done.

If you’re overwhelmed by thinking of all there is to be done, stop thinking about it so much and start working on it. You have the chance to make a real difference for as long as you choose to do so.

— Ralph Marston
