Solitude and silence teach me to love my brothers for what they are, not for what they say.
-- Thomas Merton

Remember, results are what count. It doesn’t really matter how you get them, as long as it is not illegal, immoral or unethical. What results are you getting?

Just staying busy is not the point. Just passing time is not enough, unless you’re getting results. The bigger difference you can make, the more fulfilled and abundant your life will be. What are you doing to make a difference today?

Keep your eye on the results, and you’ll stay on track to accomplishment. Keep the end result in mind, and you’ll avoid getting sidetracked into activities that don’t accomplish anything.

Look at your work, your life, your family. Are you getting the results you want? If not, then it is time to adjust your actions. There’s no point in continuing to do anything that doesn’t get you where you want to be.

Decide what results you want, and then adjust your actions to get them.

— Ralph Marston
