Time on your side

The easiest way to handle a problem is before it becomes a problem. The most effective way to resolve a confrontation is to prevent it from ever happening.

By understanding and appreciating what is, you’re able to see what can be. By addressing big issues when they are still small, you can greatly enhance your positive influence.

Great achievements are built in long successions of small moments. When you know where you’re going from the very beginning, you’ll get there much more quickly.

Every day you are putting forth effort. Have the foresight to point all those successive efforts in the same direction, and you can create whatever results you wish.

Get out in front of your life and do what you must do, long before it must be done. Instead of wasting much effort on playing catch up, enjoy the rich, fulfilling rewards that come from being ahead of the game.

Act early, act often and act with positive purpose. Reap the tremendous benefits of putting time on your side.

— Ralph Marston
