We promise according to our hopes and perform according to our fears.

Live by design

When you set out to accomplish nothing, that is exactly what will happen -- you’ll accomplish nothing.

You have the energy, the intelligence, the ability to do great things. In what direction is that ability pointed? How clearly have you defined your objective? Vague and nebulous wishes are impossible to ever achieve. How can you accomplish what you cannot define?

A clear and specific goal will pull you toward itself. See your objective in great detail, and you’re well on your way there.

Specifically, what do you intend to accomplish today? Choose it, name it, define it, see it clearly and it will happen. Live by design and you’ll get great results.

— Ralph Marston
