Progress now

Your problems can be solved, but they cannot be solved in a few minutes. Take the time, do the work, make some progress here, some more progress there, as you can.

Your highest goals can be reached, but not in a magical, effortless instant. Be eager to give your achievements the value of your time, work, discipline, and persistence.

This is a perfectly good moment to create value, no matter if the economy is booming or busted. This is a day you can use to your advantage, regardless of the disadvantages you are saddled with.

Don’t endlessly analyze what might or might not happen. Just do your best with what you know, with what you have, right now.

There are a whole lot of factors you cannot control. Put all those things out of your mind, free yourself to focus on what you can indeed do, and do it well.

Step beyond worry, resentment, blame, anger, and envy. There is real progress you can generate right now, so take the opportunity and make it happen.
