In any moment of decision the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing.

Consistent effort

If you make more progress than you thought you would, don’t compensate by slowing down. You’re doing great, so raise your expectations even higher and keep going strong.

If you fail to make as much progress as you had planned, don’t get discouraged. Remind yourself of why you’re making the effort, and re-commit to getting it done.

Consistent, purposeful effort will reliably bring the results you seek. On some days you’ll move faster than on other days, yet every day you’ll keep going forward.

Never forget that there is great power in small actions that are repeated again and again. Though the path may be long and winding and uneven, by continuing to put one foot in front of the other, you’ll reach your destination.

Celebrate the small victories and learn from the small defeats. Then, keep on moving steadily toward the goal you’ve chosen.

Put the power of consistent effort to work. And each day, you’ll bring new value to life.

— Ralph Marston
