The real test in golf and in life is not in keeping out of the rough, but in getting out after you are in.

Power decisions

Add power to your decisions by acting on them immediately. When you make a choice to follow a particular path, start doing it right away, not by jumping blindly into it, but by taking the appropriate first step without hesitation.

Commitment comes from action. Deciding in your mind is not enough to seal your commitment. When you delay taking action, it becomes less and less likely that your decision will ever be transformed into reality.

Give power to your choices by giving them your efforts. There is always a first step to be taken, something that can be done right away. As soon as you start to act, you have created momentum. Once in motion, you are much more likely to stay in motion.

So don’t just think about it. Get up and do it. Right now.

— Ralph Marston
