Your best every time

Sometimes you’ll be disappointed that your actions didn’t make more of a difference. Other times, something you didn’t think would matter much, has a major positive impact.

You simply can’t know in advance exactly how things will turn out. What you can do, is give your best every time.

When nobody else notices, you’ll still know you did your best. That’s a valuable thing to know.

If everybody notices, you’ll be thankful you did your best. And so will many others.

Many factors, you can’t anticipate or control. Yet you can control the quality of your efforts, to great benefit.

Give your best every time. No matter what happens later, you’ve made the smartest choice.

— Ralph Marston
