When you clench your fist, no one can put anything in your hand, nor can your hand pick up anything.

Much you can do

You probably will not have an opportunity to save the whole world today. But you can surely brighten your own corner of it.

Most likely you will not get everything done that you had wanted to do. Yet you can definitely make some real and lasting progress.

The people with whom you come in contact may not all appreciate or understand you. Still, you can have a positive effect on some of those lives.

The events of this day are not all going to proceed according to your plans. Even so, you can create value from whatever comes your way.

Chances are that conditions will not be perfect and circumstances will not be ideal. Fortunately, there is much you can do with whatever you have.

Welcome to this gloriously flawed and wonderfully imperfect day. It’s the perfect opportunity to live with richness and to create real value.

— Ralph Marston
