Wisdom is knowing what to do next, skill is knowing how to do it, and virtue is doing it.

Even now

Imagine that your most difficult problem has already been solved, for in many ways it truly has. Somewhere, somehow, among what is already available to you is a starting point for moving successfully past the challenge.

Imagine that your most deeply held desire has already been fulfilled, for in some very real ways it has been indeed. Even at this moment, you already have a place to start and a path to follow that will take you steadily toward that dream.

Imagine that whatever you need is already available to you, for in many ways it is. Something you already have, or something you already know, or something you can already do, is a very real starting point for taking you to whatever you need.

Life is a process of change, and the future does not equal the past. Yet what will come, what you will have, begins with what is here and now. You can take what you have even now and point it in any direction you wish. Point it today in the best direction you can possibly imagine.

— Ralph Marston
