Better and Better

Each day is an opportunity for improvement. Every time you do something gives you a chance to do it even better than the time before. Moment by moment, you become more successful and effective than before.

Little by little, it all adds up. In the long run, the efforts that make the most difference are the incremental ones. There is enormous power in just doing a little bit more each day. Because your efforts compound, you improve on the improvements, getting better and better all the time.

What little bit more can you do today? There’s always room for improvement, both in quantity (an extra phone call, an extra 4 or 5 minutes working on a project) and quality (better focus and concentration).

Every day, in every way, you’re getting better and better. Better at work, better at your relationships, better at balancing your life, better at living positively and successfully. Each day is an opportunity to learn from the day before and build on your past experience. Life is good, and it gets better.

— Ralph Marston
