Now is the time to act

It is far easier to prepare for a storm when the skies are still clear. By the time dark clouds appear on the horizon, your options are drastically more limited and much less effective.

The surest way to make a task more difficult is to put it off until later. The cost of anything continues to rise the longer you take to pay for it.

Use this moment to create value instead of trying to borrow that value from the future. The sooner you make the effort, the more rewarding life will be.

A small precaution right now can help you avoid big problems later. The most reliable path to a great accomplishment is to start working on it as early as possible.

This is the moment when you can make a difference. So make full use of the opportunity that has come your way.

Do the difficult things while they are still easy. Right now is the time to act so as to get the highest return for your efforts.

— Ralph Marston
