To be aware of a single shortcoming in oneself is more useful than to be aware of a thousand in someone else.

A job well done

Be inspired by perfection but don’t be stopped by it. Seek to get it perfect, yet even when it won’t be perfect go ahead and get it done.

Set your standards high, but not so high that you fail to get anything accomplished. Give your very best to every effort by following through with whatever you start.

You can always think of excuses and scenarios for possible disappointment. But excuses and worries won’t accomplish anything.

Just go ahead, step right in and get started. You’ll make some mistakes along the way and have the valuable opportunity to learn much from them.

Commit to your intentions and act on them. Give effort and energy to what you value most.

At every opportunity, make a difference. And know the sweet fulfillment of a job well done.

— Ralph Marston
