Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does.

A little more

When you’ve done what needs to be done, go ahead and do a little more. When you’ve gotten some momentum going, make good use of it.

By itself, a tiny effort won’t be very effective. Yet when it is added on at the end of another effort, it can make a world of positive difference.

Those who stop when they’ve done what needs to be done will usually manage to just get by. Those who keep going just a little bit longer end up being vastly more successful.

The difference between mediocrity and astounding success isn’t really that much. And yet, though the difference is small, it is crucial.

You can quit when you break even, and you’ll manage to stay just where you are. Or you can add a little extra effort, and move steadily ahead each time.

Once you’re moving forward, you have momentum on your side. Go a little past the goal, and the rewards will grow with every effort.

— Ralph Marston
