Joy in the doing

Joyfully do what must be done. Engage your mind, body, spirit, time, and resources in beneficial, rewarding activity.

It’s cold, windy, and dark out there, and your bed feels so warm, so comfortable. Get up, take a deep breath, feel the energy of your life, and put that energy to use.

Step forward, toward the challenge, into the effort. Marvel at the fresh new opportunity to make a difference, and then do it.

This day will soon be over and when it is, here’s how you’ll feel. You’ll feel a thousand times better that you did something with it rather than wasting it.

In the meantime, now is not the time for complaints, excuses, procrastination, or distraction. Now is your time for action, your time to live at your highest level of competence and effectiveness.

Now is your time to discover new joy in the doing of what matters, of what makes a difference. Now, get going and get it done.

— Ralph Marston
