Politics is not the art of the possible. It consists in choosing between the disastrous and the unpalatable.

Achievement mode

Create some meaningful new value with this day you now have. Choose to put yourself in the achievement mode.

Start with commitment. Decide on a goal and decide you will achieve it, no excuses, no quitting, no let up in action until it’s done.

Continue with enthusiasm. Care, even if no one else does, relentlessly positive about the good work you’re doing.

Remember your purpose. With each challenge, remind yourself why you must push through it and what’s most important about doing so.

Zero in on value. Understand that your efforts transform the value available to you into the value you seek to create.

Dance with joyful persistence from one task to another, grateful for the opportunity. Live today in the achievement mode, and discover how very much you can do.

— Ralph Marston
