Plunge in

You only have so many hours in each day. Time is the most limited resource there is. You can choose to spend that time on the easy stuff, and get a little bit accomplished. Or, you can decide to work on the toughest challenges, and receive maximum return for the time invested.

Think about it. Is it any more painful, or any less desirable to resolve the difficult challenges? No, not really. That’s just a perception. The real pain comes from being confronted with the obstacle, not from working to overcome it.

To get maximum results from your efforts, plunge into the most difficult challenges first. You’ll stand out from the crowd as an effective problem solver. You’ll learn more. You’ll develop a much greater degree of confidence. You’ll create more value. You’ll get farther, faster.

Get the highest return on the investment of your time. Seek out the difficult challenges and make the very most of your efforts.

— Ralph Marston
