Four things come not back: the spoken word, the spent arrow, the past, and the neglected opportunity.

Clarity

Chart your course with clarity and precision, and you will not fail to reach your destination. Listen clearly, and you will learn. Speak with clarity, and you will be understood.

Clarity takes effort. It is much easier, and less risky, to be vague. But it is clarity that gets you places. When you say, “I want to go somewhere nice, someday” it never happens. Instead, say “I will leave for New Zealand on September 21st on flight 235.” Now you’re getting somewhere.

The powerful resources at your command, are best directed with clarity. Be clear about what you want to have, what you want to be, what you want to do, and you’re well on your way to accomplishing it.

— Ralph Marston
