Be specific

The more specific you are about what you intend to do, the more likely you are to get it done. The more specific you are when asking, the more appropriate will be the answer you receive.

Be specific about your goals, and you’ll find the means to achieve them. Be specific about your concerns, and you’ll find ways to successfully address them.

It is impossible to complete a journey if you only have a vague, general idea of where you’re going. By contrast, when you know exactly where you wish to go, then every step you take brings you closer.

Be specific, and problems are transformed into opportunities for achievement and growth. Be specific, and your most treasured dreams begin to pull you toward them.

Be specific, and misunderstandings disappear. Be specific, and life will more often unfold the way you want.

Challenge yourself to go beyond the easy, comfortable generalizations and put in the effort to be specific. When you’re clear about where you’re going, you’ll get there.

— Ralph Marston
