A man who dares to waste an hour of time has not discovered the value of life.

A full-time thing

If you quit before the work is completed, the work you’ve done is wasted. Honor the time and effort you’ve already put into it by finishing what you started.

If you plant a seed, and water it just for a few days, and then stop, you might as well have never planted it. Remember to direct your focus again and again toward those things you’re committed to completing.

Being inspired for a few minutes or for a day or two feels good. Being inspired for a lifetime is what actually achieves good and valuable results.

Remind yourself what a truly extraordinary opportunity you have by virtue of being you. Then remind yourself again, and again, on every day, in each new situation.

Feel the exquisite joy and purposeful power of being alive. Then commit yourself to staying connected to that feeling.

Don’t settle for just a few moments here and there of brilliance and inspiration and true richness. Make life’s richness a full-time thing.

— Ralph Marston
