The more sand that has escaped from the hourglass of our life, the clearer we should see through it.

Every corner

Achievement in one area of your life shines a positive light on all the other areas in your life. So when you seem to be stuck in one part of your life, put some effort into making improvements elsewhere.

If, for example, you’re having trouble making progress in your career, work on improving your level of physical fitness. The beneficial effects of a higher level of fitness will spill over into all parts of your life.

By the same token, you can’t expect to ignore important parts of your life and have things go well in other areas. You can’t ignore your spouse and family and expect your job to take up the slack.

Success is a full-time endeavor. It comes when you integrate positive efforts and expectations into every corner of your life.

Your health, your finances, your friendships, family, faith, community, career, learning, relaxation and recreation all contribute to each other. Balance your time and attention on a daily basis among all the things that truly matter, and the positive momentum will quickly grow.

The achievements that really matter are those that enhance your whole life.

— Ralph Marston
