Choose persistence

When you’ve done just enough, do a little more. Soon you’ll be far ahead.

When you’re making good progress, keep going. Take full advantage of your momentum.

When you feel like stopping, give yourself an enjoyable break. Then come back to your work with fresh energy and a renewed sense of purpose.

Persistence is not ever easy. Yet it is always yours to choose.

And persistence makes the difference between permanent regret and lasting achievement. Ask yourself often, which would you rather have?

Right now, on this task, in this place, you can persist. Do it, choose persistence, and you know you’ll always be thankful you did.

— Ralph Marston
