Future consequences

One action, taken now, can have powerful consequences far into the future. That fact can be a blessing or a curse, depending of course on what the action is.

Time will magnify whatever you do. So even in the smallest matters, do what is right.

The direction and purpose of each effort are much more important than the size of the effort. For over time, all your efforts will add together to exert great influence on your life and your world.

Your future consequences are being born right now. This is a moment of great opportunity.

Point all your actions, large and small, important and seemingly insignificant, in the direction you wish to see your life move. Time will combine all those actions into an increasingly powerful set of results, and now is when you can choose those results.

With your efforts, choose to put time on your side. Make the future your friend by making the most of right now.

— Ralph Marston
