Ideal circumstances

Those who hold out for the perfect partner often end up with no partner. Those who seek the perfect opportunity may never find the opportunity they seek.

It’s great to expect the best out of life. But it’s foolish to expect the best to be handed to you upfront with no contribution on your part.

You’re simply not ever going to walk into a ready-made set of ideal circumstances. Yet you’ll encounter circumstances all the time where you can work to create much value.

A situation without any challenges is a fantasy. Look instead for situations with meaningful challenges.

Perfection is not usually a condition you can work from. It is, however, something you can always work toward.

Go with what you have, with what’s available. And you’ll be able to go to some truly great places.

— Ralph Marston
