Get it done

Every choice you face, every decision you make has its good points and bad points. Consider them carefully, and then make the decision. A less than perfect answer is infinitely better than doing nothing.

Everything you attempt has some risks and some challenges. For anything you undertake, there are plenty of reasons not to do it. Weigh the risks against the benefits, and then make the commitment to take action. Decide what you want to do, with your eyes fully open, and then do it without looking back.

There are many directions from which you can choose. Yet you must choose. Your options are meaningful only when you exercise some of them and reject the rest. Trying to do everything is as fruitless as trying to do nothing.

Define yourself. Choose your path and start walking. Decide what you want to do, and get it done.

— Ralph Marston
