The secret of happiness is not in doing what one likes, but in liking what one does.

Learn from action

You don’t have to sit around waiting for a moment of brilliance. Instead, spend your moments taking action, and allow the brilliance to eventually rise to the top.

Don’t spend a lot of time and effort agonizing over what strategy to use. Make enough attempts, and the best strategy will eventually become evident.

Often, to find out what works you have to do what doesn’t. Learn and prepare the best you can, then jump in and do.

Experience will teach you what nothing else can. Start accumulating that experience as soon as possible.

Instead of wondering about the best approach, find out. The sooner you start taking action, the sooner you’ll zero in on the most effective set of actions.

Get quickly beyond speculating about what works best in theory and find what actually does work in practice. Learn from action, and learn what really counts.

— Ralph Marston
