The time to act

The sooner you deal with a difficult situation, the less time you’ll spend living with it. The sooner you take advantage of the positive possibilities, the more time you’ll spend enjoying the rewards.

The time to act is now, when you have the thought, intention and reason to act. Now is when you’re clear about why, and now is when your passion is engaged, so put it to meaningful use.

By all means put care and consideration into what you do. Yet don’t let care and consideration be the only thing you do.

The sooner you take action, the more leverage you have. The sooner you take action, the more thorough and effective you can be.

The situation will not change by pretending it’s something different or by wishing it away. The situation will change when you act to make a difference, and the time to do that is now.

Give yourself a break from worry, anxiety, and difficulties that pile on top of difficulties. Take control, act positively and quickly, and make your world better by what you choose to do.

— Ralph Marston
