Aim High

Give yourself plenty to do. You get more accomplished when you attempt more. You won’t get it all done, but the more you attempt, the more you’ll accomplish.

Those moments when you are wondering “what to do next” are wasting your precious time. There are plenty of things in your life that need doing. Make a list and keep it handy. Don’t worry about getting it all done, just do one thing after another. Keep adding to your list. The list will never get done, but a lot of other things will.

You can do whatever you want. You can be whatever you want. You can have whatever you want. By doing it, by being it, by getting it. By doing what it takes. By making a list of the steps you need to get there, and then following those steps, one after another.

— Ralph Marston
