One good thing

You can always get one good thing done. And then that one good thing will lead to another.

If you attempt to make the entire journey in a single leap, you’ll be disappointed and quite possibly injured. Yet taking one step is easy, accessible, and makes the next step even easier.

Nobody can summon, all at once, the dedication necessary for a massive undertaking. However, anybody can be dedicated enough to make one little effort.

One effort at a time is really all it ever takes. You just have to make one effort, and then another, and another, until the job is done.

You can do that, and you can do it in this instant. There’s no need to fret or procrastinate, to worry, make excuses, or avoid the effort.

It’s a whole lot easier to just go ahead and do it. Now is when you can.

— Ralph Marston
