Good thoughts are no better than good dreams, unless they be executed.
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson


Friday, October 3, 2003


The sooner you deal with a problem, the less of a problem it will be. The sooner you act on an opportunity, the more value that opportunity can bring. The time to act is now. The longer you wait, the more you put yourself at a disadvantage.

No matter how far ahead or how far behind you may be, there is always something you can do. Be willing to act sooner rather than later, and your actions will be all the more effective. Stop waiting for conditions to be perfect. Regardless of what the conditions may be, there is some way to start moving positively ahead right now.

Sure, there are plenty of good excuses for failing to act. Yet they all pale in comparison to the advantage you’ll gain by going ahead and getting started. The sooner you act, the better it will be.

— Ralph Marston
