The old begin to complain of the conduct of the young when they themselves are no longer able to set a bad example.

Your future begins now

Today is a turning point in your life. The things you accomplish, the people you meet, the direction you set today, will have consequences far into the future.

One little bit of extra effort, made today, might change the rest of your life for the better. It would be a shame to miss the opportunity. So do all you can do today, and just a little bit more. Make that extra phone call. Look at that one additional report. Investigate that one additional possibility. Think of the difference it could make.

Each day affects all the ones that come after it. In your actions, in your thoughts, in your decisions, proceed as if today is the most critical day of your life. Because it is.

— Ralph Marston
