There is only one way to avoid criticism: Do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing.

Use what you have

Don’t waste a lot of time making judgments about what you have. Instead, put it to use.

Stop complaining that it’s not enough or that it’s not fair. Just get busy and make the most of it.

Fighting against what already is, will only slow you down. Instead, make good and productive use of what is, whatever it may be, and you’ll find many ways to move forward.

If you wait until things are perfect before taking action, that day will never come. Use what you have, as flawed and imperfect as it may seem, and you’ll soon be making massive improvements to it all.

Don’t worry about comparing what you have to what others may or may not have. Just concern yourself with doing the best you can do.

Start from where you are, with what you have, and persistently do what you know you must do. There is no limit to where you can go.

— Ralph Marston
