Hard work without talent is a shame, but talent without hard work is a tragedy.

Do all you can do

What you do, matters. What you fail to do, matters.

To tell yourself otherwise is just an excuse. Pretending you’re powerless to change things is mostly a way to avoid responsibility for working on those changes.

Sooner or later, that game gets old. Eventually, regret hits you like a ton of bricks.

So now, when you have the opportunity, do all you can do. Now, while this day is yours, make full use of it.

No, of course you won’t be one hundred percent effective in everything you undertake. Yet you can work, and persist, and learn from your results, and make real progress.

The obstacles and challenges are real, and so are the opportunities. Today, take those opportunities and give to them the best you have.

— Ralph Marston
