He who refuses to embrace a unique opportunity loses the prize as surely as if he had tried and failed.

Your moment to begin

The best time to start is now. The best place to start is here.

The best resources to use are whatever you have. The best way to proceed is by doing whatever you can do.

It’s fine to have ambitious and detailed plans, but the plans are not the achievement. Achievement requires action, and the sooner you start the better.

It’s good to study carefully and prepare yourself for the effort. Yet much of what you need to know, you’ll have to learn as you go along, so go, do, learn, achieve.

Don’t let the good things you envision stay stuck in your imagination. Give them life by giving them your immediate and persistent effort.

There are countless things you can do to make life better. And now is your moment to begin.

— Ralph Marston
