Go to the trouble

Go to the trouble, take the initiative, do the work and make good things happen. Throw off the excuses, blast past the distractions and get it done.

Stand up, step forward, get started and keep going for as long as necessary. This stuff isn’t that hard and you can do it.

You’ll thank yourself for how good it makes you feel to get the work done. You’ll thank yourself again when you realize you’ve exchanged fleeting moments for lasting value.

The purposeful part of you hungers to make a difference. Get yourself busy and feed that hunger.

Don’t sink into the comfortable mediocrity of doing nothing. Challenge yourself to live with the richness you deserve.

Fill this day with focused effort, new experience, and the satisfaction of achievement. Enjoy the rewards you create for yourself and all those you care about by going to the trouble.

— Ralph Marston
