Get through

You’ve got a lot to get through today, so jump right in. You’ve got a lot to get through today, so remind yourself what a true blessing it is.

In all that you must do are multiple opportunities to make a difference in your world. That list of things to do is a list of ways in which you can have a positive impact.

You may not get it all finished today, but that’s no reason to delay or be discouraged. On the contrary, that’s a reason to get going just as soon as you can.

You may not get it all done perfectly, but that’s no reason to avoid doing it. Do your best with what you have, from where you are, with the time available, and though it may not be perfect, it will be great, and it will be done.

Certainly you’ll make some mistakes, and maybe you’ll experience some disappointment or embarrassment. Yet at the end of the day, you’ll have some real, substantive accomplishments under your belt, and they’ll be well worth whatever you had to endure.

In what you must get done, there is immense opportunity. Get busy, get it done, and reap the rewards that are yours to create.

— Ralph Marston
