Work on it

Stop taking refuge in the promise of quick fixes or the familiarity of worn-out excuses. Make the effort, do the work, and fulfill your best possibilities.

Even if you can’t get it perfect, work on it. Even if you can’t get it all done right away, work on it.

Work on it with commitment and persistence. You know you’re capable of creating new, worthwhile, meaningful value, so do what you know you can do.

This day is a unique opportunity that you’ll only get once. Work on it, and lock in the value of that opportunity while you can.

Don’t sacrifice the chance to make a lasting difference for a little fleeting, momentary pleasure. Persist, focus, do the work and enjoy the far greater pleasure of a job well done.

Life will get even better when you work on it. Use the powerful opportunity of this day to do just that.

— Ralph Marston
