A man is rich in proportion to the number of things which he can afford to let alone.

Put yourself to use

Don’t just develop your abilities. Put them to use.

Don’t merely collect information. Put it to good and meaningful use.

Don’t simply absorb your life’s experiences. Put those experiences to use in moving forward.

There are so many valuable and wonderful things you can do with just the few hours in this one single day. And after today is another, and another, all filled with positive ways to put yourself to use.

If you just stand still, and do nothing with the opportunities, you’ll soon have nothing but regret. Today, right now, is when you can replace the pain of future regret with the joy of present, fruitful action.

You have a beautiful life that’s filled with rich possibilities. And now is your chance to put it to use.

— Ralph Marston
