To forget how to dig the earth and to tend the soil is to forget ourselves.

All the details

If you wish to achieve a great and ambitious vision, you have to be willing to fill in all the little details. Though they may seem terribly tedious at times, those details are what give substance to the dream.

Don’t ever consider the details to be beneath you. Doing so will put the achievement of your dream beyond your reach.

Yes, it is enormously helpful when you can delegate tasks to others. Yet to do so successfully, you must have full respect for the value of those tasks and for the people who perform them.

Dreams are not achieved by those who merely imagine and articulate them. Dreams are achieved by those who take responsibility for making sure that every little detail gets done.

Dream the dream, and then do the work. Envision the achievement, and then find a way to tend to all the details.

No detail is unimportant or beneath you. For it is all those details, combined together, which bring the dream to life.

— Ralph Marston
