The only thing that hurts more than paying an income tax is not having to pay an income tax.

One more

Before you quit, give it one more attempt. Before you stop, take one more step. While you have the opportunity, make an extra effort. The day will come when that extra effort can make an enormous positive difference.

You’re far more effective when you get a little ahead, than when you have to catch up. Rather than stopping just as soon as you’ve pulled even, make that one more effort to put yourself ahead.

That way, when your big break comes along, you’ll be in a position to make the most of it. That way, if times get tough, you’ll be in a position to weather the storm. Do what must be done, and then do a little more. Take one more step, make one more effort every chance you get, and soon you’ll be far, far ahead.

One more step isn’t really that much. But, oh what a difference it can make.

— Ralph Marston
