To be able to do a thing, you must begin to do it, and keep on doing it until the thing is mastered.

Savor the journey

Don’t let yourself become too obsessed with hurrying to get there. While you’re on the way, savor the journey.

Go fast enough to get it done, but slow enough to do it well. Do what you must to achieve the goal, while enjoying all the richness you find in the effort.

Sometimes the road is more interesting and fulfilling than the destination to where it leads. Often what you learn along the way is more valuable than what you find when you get there.

Rushing ahead of everyone else is not an indication of how enlightened or important someone is. It’s actually a sign of ignorance and insecurity.

Be confident enough to make the journey at an enjoyable, sustainable pace. Be smart enough to understand how much value can be created and collected along the way.

Keep going, steadily, and you’ll get there. As you do, savor the journey, every step of the way.

— Ralph Marston
