Small success

At some point during this day you’re sure to find a few minutes that would otherwise have been wasted. Today, take those few minutes and use them for productive, creative effort.

Don’t be concerned with what you’ll get from it. Just put your mind, your heart, your passion and full attention into the effort. Don’t do it to impress anyone or to gain any kind of advantage. Just do it to give something of value to life.

Spend a few moments creating value where it did not exist before. Spend a few precious moments expressing yourself in a positive, unique way through the efforts you put forth.

Even the smallest positive accomplishment can improve the tone of your whole day. Once you establish a positive momentum, its energy will carry over into everything else you do.

Enjoy a small success today. It can lead to something grand.

— Ralph Marston
